Large bar on Stuart Street, close to the hotel I was staying at, popped in here for one more brew while i was out and about. Huge place, plenty of seating, nice staff, after seeing some of the ratings on here, i wish i had decided to grab a bite to eat, nice selection of brews, no top 100ís, but not a bad place to chill. If i am in the area again, maybe i will stop in for lunch.

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 like German food, this place has been a fixture in Boston on Stuart street since 1868. Long Wooden tables and waiters in black tie serve: Bratwurst, Saurbraten,Wiener Schnitzel, and German Mixed Grill (Grilled Smoked Bratwurst and Weisswurst with Sauerkraut, Red Cabbage and German Potato Salad.) along with fantistic chowder. Beer selection is your average: Sam Adams, Guiness, etc..
