Large central bar with a million taps, and table off to one side. The selection was terrific, including some special bottles they brought in for the local beer festival. Service was quick, efficient and friendly even when the place got packed.a must-stop while in the city.

Great atmosphere and good beers to boot! When we were in Boston for an extended stay a couple of years ago we waited with bated breath for the opening of Lord Hobo but it was put back and we missed it. It was nice to be able to visit at last on this trip, and to see that it seems to have become a popular fixture on the Boston / Cambridge beer scene. (Visited 25 October 2012).

Insanely busy and I managed to grab the last available corner spot at the bar otherwise it was standing room only. I actually prefer to stand but in America itís not the done thing in bars and pubs. Anyway, Iím not sure if itís always this crazy on a Saturday afternoon but it turned out that they were launching their Lord Hobo Pale Ale or something along those lines. I struggled to hear myself think it was so loud in here. The tap selection was nice and I found two beers to try on the menu. Credit to the bar staff who were quick on service during a busy period. I didnít hang around for too long though. Mixed crowd but mostly younger (than me) type folk. Everyone appeared to be enjoying themselves so good on Lord Hobo. I didnít eat but food looked plentiful.

This is a serious beer joint. The emphasis is on getting quality brews for people like us to geek out on. It was very busy on a Friday night, but not prohibitively so. There were tons of things on tap I wanted to drink. Service was good. Bartenders stayed busy to keep up with the volume. The ambiance is cool with the wooden interior, hip music and very, very dim lighting. Also, the hobo burger is incredibly delicious.

The draft list is possibly second to none in Boston, and ultimately, it is what matters the most but I canít say I was overly fond of the vibe on my visit. It must be said however that this was a late Saturday night. The good news is they were serving food even then. It was however very dark, very packed with a youngish crowd and very loud. The service managed to remain courteous, efficient and professional in spite of the crowd.

Visited late on a Tuesday night and found the place surprisingly busy. The clientele was pretty young. Lots of Narragansett was being consumed. The beer list was solid. I counted about 40 beers. Probably a third of the list came from New England. I settled on pours from Lost Nation and Trillium. Prices for the beer wasnít exactly cheap, though Boston seems to be an expensive place in general. One Trillium beer on the menu was priced at $12 for a 12oz pour. The food was more reasonable, but I canít say I was impressed by it. My burger was the definition of mediocre. Service was friendly, prompt. Overall, Iíd return again, but this visit didnít leave me blown away by the experience.

We visited Lord Hobo on a Sunday afternoon to sample beers and meet up with the infamous ClakVV. The reputation of this place (& Clark) preceded itself. The bar is located in more of a neighbourhood location and was actually quite a bit smaller than I was expecting. We sat at the bar and immediately were presented with a tap menu of impressive scale. They have plenty of variety and obscurity on offer. We went through a few barrel-aged Stone beers (the beer themselves were a touch underwhelming) and some tasty Kent Falls. Although I did not partake, the bottle list also looked pretty solid. Service was friendly but it took a while to get served, even though it was quite quiet during our visit. I wish I had more time to spend here, but alas the Boston leg of our trip was a short one. One of the best beer venues in Boston.

Yup - this place is a definite must on any beer- (or just food for that matter) loverís visit to Boston. Great ambiance with dark painted walls surrounding a larger 360 degree bar area. There is a small area with table service toward the front of the bar and everything is clean and tidy, yet intimate. Onto the specifics - man what a killer beer list. Three Cantillons and a plethora of rare shit from Struise including Black Albert and Black Albert II. Was a bit intimidated because we only scheduled about 90 minutes to drink here, but thanks to the disposable cheapness of MegaBus, we ended up spending an extra two hours just trying to suck it all up. The prices were pretty solid as well. As for the food, just like with the beer, thereís not much to complain about. I had some appropriately rich and succulent beef cheeks served over cheddar cheese grits and some very well-made frites as well. I think this might be the best beer bar in the city at this point.

After salivating at the menu online, I stopped by here for lunch to find its one of those places that does brunch on Sunday, I hate that crap. If I want brunch, Iíll go to a brunch place. Having said that, my food was pretty good as were the others I was with. That sadly was the highlight of my visit. The host was super friendly, but the server was slightly rude, slow and put off by our orders. The draft list was pretty pathetic, I was expecting some major heavy hitters for such a lofty RB ranking. The focus was more on national beers, albeit decent, that you can get anywhere, vs having more locals of Night shift, Trillium, Jackís Abby and the rest. This place can be skipped.

I loved this place, with over 40 taps of interesting beers (Port, Lost Abbey, so far from home). Food is basic yet interesting with cheeses and meats of the day. Prices a bit on the higher side but made up by the sheer selection. A must go in Boston.
