Not my favorite spot. Itís in a weird neighborhood near the financial and theater districts. Clearly an old restaurant thatís hung around forever. Has a very old Boston (like early 1900s, not actual historic) feel. Beer selection is fins but not particularly cultivated. Food is not great. Service was lacking.
I suspect that once upon a time this place was actually one of the better beer spots by virtue of its number of taps. It has been so drastically overtaken by so many places over the years it now looks quite pathetic. Itís time this place just got retired.

La sfilza interminabile di spina lascia senza fiato, e anche la selezione di birre in mottiglia merita. Líambiente Ť caratteristico e accattivante, con un esercito di eccentriche spine in disuso che torreggia bonariamente sui tavoli. Il cibo, di tradizione tedesca ma non ligio a uníortodossia intransigente, Ť eccezionale. Una visitina a cena, Ť di dovere; anche due-tre!

A nice old fashioned restaurant with good traditional German food and a decent selection of draft beers and imported bottles. Thereís a rather cramped bar area near the door and a large raised area for dining on rickety old wooden tables and spindly chairs.
(Last visited 21 October 2012).

This place dates to the 1860ís which only adds to its charm. Brightlyblutnwith only a couple of tvís so itís a great place for conversation or on this night listening to the piano man. They have over 40 taps written on a chalkboard above the piano. Itís mainly local and regional craft with some German selections thrown in for good measure. They seem to do a number of beer events as well. The food was fantastic, especially the BLT Mac and Cheese. The prices were very reasonable as well. Another great find courtesy of ratebeer.

The bar is a cross between German and Irish. So much about it makes me think Irish but then there is a ton of German stuff all over. The selection is pretty big with some staples and some nice regional choices. The service was great and even gave us samples of some of the things we had never heard of before so we got an idea what they were like. Best chowder I had in the city. Prices are pretty on. We went twice while in town.

Good selection of bottles and taps. I had a great reuben. Wasnít too busy when I was there, so I had solid service. Open interior with old wood tables - nice if a little jammed.

busy service personnel that may have been shortstaffed, none the less good service. Good authentic German and American food and drinks priced well. Good selection of brews on tap mostly German with some bottles. I like the atmosphere tin roof style open bar/restaurant retro 1930ís.

If you love beer (so if youíre on this website) you gotta check this place out. Food was excellent, beer selection was great. I donít even know how many draughts or bottles they had. Two pages of bottles, giant chalk board of draughts. We got a good waiter. I donít know if you will too, but we sure did. Only down side was pints are at cheapest 6.50 for a good beer. Ouch. Ranging up into over 10 bucks for some pints. Not the kind of place to do some heavy drinking, but the food and selection make it worth it.
