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).

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.

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.

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.

I have a pretty serious beer crush on this place. Stopped by for brunch and the food was excellent. Love the atmosphere and the thought that clearly went into selecting their taps & bottles. Staff is a bit standoffish until they decide you know enough about beer to warm up to you, but thatís fine. Lots of people seemed to wander in because of the location and couldnít care less about their riches on tap. A must-visit place if youíre in Boston.

Most of all, I canít believe I only paid $4 for a pint of Haverhillís excellent Berliner Weisse here. Wow! Because everything else here is outstanding in its own right. Great atmosphere, a super-friendly, very knowledge, interesting bartender that lacked pretension. Great beers in great glassware. A must-visit that Iíll definitely be back to.

Deep burgundy walls and dark wood, and almost too dark at 4 in the afternoon with the sun out, but still a lovely feel, rather intimate even with probably 100 people in the place. Service is fairly quick and attentive and the staff all seems fairly friendly (though after ordering a few beers, opening a tab at the bar, and heading over to an empty table, we were met with a slight look of disdain from the server who ultimately came to visit us at the large group table). The parenthetically aforementioned large tables are rather nice. I quite like fewer communal large tables over multiple small tables. Came back again later in the evening and even though it was packed the service was still fairly brisk and the atmosphere was amazing. Certainly will be coming back here.

Great well rounded well thought bout beer list all the time. Helpful staff. Lime the music and art on walls. Tend to visit during off peak hours so typically never have trouble with crowds. Favorite Cambridge bar.
