I have heard some great things about this place, figured I would make the quick walk up from CBC to check it out. I was instantly greeted by a giant curtain.....ok whatever. Once I got through the magic trick entrance I was greeted by a large U shaped bar with booths along the wall adjacent to it. Decent amount of people but not packed at all, got more packed as I left. Two TVís, only one on, offers a distraction from the overly loud people scattered around the bar. Service was pretty solid. My bartender really knew her stuff and answered every question I had easily and I got most of my drinks quickly. She went a little scattered as the bar filled up, spending quite a bit of time talking to the locals and not taking others orders as quickly as she should have. Quality is high across the board. They donít appear to skimp on anything here. Proper glasses and top shelf ingredients are the norm here apparently. Selection is as expected, diverse. Beers from all over the world with a wide range of styles. Nothing overly rare but the variety makes up for it. I went with the bartenders choice, a german weisse, and it was pretty good. I got some polenta fries to go and they were really good. I am definitely going to try some of the other menu items next time as they smelled excellent. Prices are a little high, especially on food, but it is a major bar in a major city so I was expecting that. Overall an awesome beer bar. I will definitely return in the future.

This is a casual bar that is easily missed if you are driving and hard to find if you are walking, but it is still worth seeking out as one of the best beer bars in New England.
The room is on the small side and is quite dark and worn. The main feature is the bar that juts out into the middle of the room. Thereís about 30 beers on tap (all of them unusual) and many more in bottle, although Iíve never seen anyone with a bottle. The tap offerings change often. I have been to this place several times and have always found at least four beers I had never had before.
The food is excellent. No typical bar fare here. The food prices are good, but the beer prices run on the high side. Then again, one will unlikely find some of the offerings anywhere else in Boston.

Good beer selection. No surprising beer but will not disappoint. Great crowd. Good service, and the food was surprisingly good. My new favorite place in this area

When I visited: Mid-September 2013.
What I had: Jackís Abby Pro-Am Pilsner, Port Brewing Wipeout IPA, Pretty Things Field Mouseís Farewell, Smuttynose Rhye IPA, and Lost Abbey Witchís Wit on tap, truffle fries, pan roasted salmon, mac and cheese, and several glasses of Wairau River Sauvignon Blanc for my better half.
What I liked: Dark, no frills ambience, good college crowd, comfy and approachable bar, insane draught list, quick and welcoming servers, delicious food, had a great chat with the bartender and one of the patrons.
What I disliked: Nothing. We had a near-flawless experience and would come here very often if we lived in the neighbourhood.
Would I go back? Absolutely.
Overall Rating: 98

Stopped in on a Wednesday night, place was surprisingly busy considering no major sporting event was going on, had to park about 2 blocks away and walk in the sub freezing temps, no room at the bar, and had to wait about 10 minutes for a table, was seated at a tall high top table with a couple having an awkward date and a lone dude on his ipad, whatever. Beer selection was good with maybe 40 drafts some cool stuff, some unique locals really good choices, prices are fair with mainstream boston I suppose, food was decent had the Hobo Burger with some spicy onions on it, the pickle was also hot like it had been pickled in a mix with hot peppers. Server was attentive and willing to help other patrons select their beverages. Good spot would return perhaps for lunch on a weekend when not as busy.

Stopped in on a Monday night, plenty of seats. Dark bar, medium sized, hipster crowd. Maybe 40-50 beers on tap. Nice selection. A mix of locals and expensive Euro/West Coast offerings. Food menu is small but everything is delicious. Good service.

Visited on 7/21/12. I came here on recommendations from a friend and many BA members (and our waitress at CBC).
A: The place doesnít look like much from the exterior other than a corner bar. The interior has a very dark motive, almost gothic feel to it.
Q: These guys donít screw around with their beer selection as they were solid across the board, nothing rare but no bullshit either.
S: Service was great, went on a Saturday afternoon and it wasnít more than half full but our server was cool, very knowledgable and attentive.
S: Solid Selection, great array of styles, regions across the entire menu.
V: Between the 4 of us, 6 beers came to about 50 bucks. Reasonable for the great beers we were drinking.
Overall, the highlight of my entire weekend in Boston. A Must Stop.

Very nice place! Ambiance was really good despite a couple of hipsters in the place. Not too loud compare to a couple of places we have been in the area. Service was awesome and helpful with the bottle list. Great selection with a couple of fairly limited beers (including Night Shift). Food was really good, we ate crab cake, cheese and fries and everything was awesome. A tad pricey, but not bad for the area. A must visit place when you are in Boston/Cambridge area.

Great selection of beers served fresh and in the right glassware but the place itself had a bit of a strange vibe. Another reviewer describes it perfectly as a vampire hangout. which is exactly the feeling I got. Beer was good though so canít complain.

I had expected this place to be incredibly snooty, but it really wasnít. I had a great time there, the service was great, and the beers were wonderful. I look forward to returning next time Iím in the area.
