This restaurant was established in 1868 by Prussian immigrant Jacob Wirth, and has been a Boston institution for 136 years. I was fortunate enough to find a seat at the fabled long mahogany bar, and started to do things off right with a pint of Jacob Wirth Special Dark Lager. This beer, along with Jacob Wirth Special Lite Lager are the two house brews, that can be found along side a selection of 26 local beers from Boston, and a deep selection of German/European imports. I was able to enjoy German favorites such Paluaner Hefeweizen, Frankenhiem Alt, Celebrator Dopple Bock, and Raderburger Pilsner, as well as Sam Adams, Harpoon, and Berkshire Brewing just to name a few. The bartender didnít know who brewed the house beers, but I suspect it is one of the local Boston breweries. This is an exceptional house brew, that must be experienced on draught at this Boston land mark. It was the perfect match to an appetizer of potato pancakes with creme fraiche and smoked salmon. It was even better with the German classic saurbraten, which is sweet and sour braised beef, served over dill spatezle, with red cabbage, and covered with a ginger snap sauce. Great German food and great German beer, made my very short trip to Boston, well wirth it!

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.

Authentic German Food & Good selection of full flavored lager beer from western europe (including some belgian beers). If you are fiending sauerbraten and munich lager this is the place.

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 damn good restaurant, the food is superb, and the beer selection is impressive, with a large number of German and Belgian beers on tap, plus a couple of local brews as well as a couple of special in-house brews. Go on Friday from 8-12 for the legendary singalong. You have to experience it to understand itís full greatness. If you do go to the singalong, thereís a good chance youíll see me there.

A beautiful and huge old school type of place, very 1920s look, wiith lots of roundtable, a super cheap snack menu (1.95$) from 11h30 AM till 5 PM. A nice and bottle selection shown on a huge blackboard, and nice and friendly service. Nice upscale pub menu...I will go back! 5$ pints, 2$ entrees, wow!

We went there last night and had a real good time. Had some good beers at the bar with friendly, knowledgable, helpful bartenders and a guy sitting next to us. Food was very good and reasonably priced, although we had to get 5 soft pretzels if we wanted any. Itís German beer hall atmosphere and nicely done. Bar area was busy and much smaller than the dining area which was vacant. Iíd sure go again!

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.
