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.

I stopped in mid afternoon with the bar full but all the tables were empty. Service was fine except both beers were what I would consider short pours with a full inch of head. Granted my standards might be high but for a $6-8 pint Iíd like the whole glass The selection was very good with a regional representation and good national representation. I had a Blatant IPA (MA) and a Sculpin. Food menu was for brunch and when I inquired I was offered a burger....

Ambience is weird, like a vampire hangout with tons mod communist artwork and they had the Red Sox game on, is it hipster now to like sports? Awesome tap loosing, friendly service and reasonable prices

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.

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.

Definitely a worthy place to visit while in Cambridge..vibe is definitely a hip lounge setting with a u shaped bar and some high tops..booths filling out room..counted 44 tap offerings which were diverse with some very quality offerings from both near and far..bartender definitely knows beer and was willing to pour sample tastes and guide patrons in right direction..it was a bit dark in place and this really was the only real gripe..didnít have time to try the food but people seemed to be enjoying late night offerings..kitchen also stays open to close..which is as plus..had band of brothers..bink offerings...best spot in Cambridge by far..beer list is updated daily on website..

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.

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).
