When I visited: Mid-September 2013. What I had: Jack’s Abby Pro-Am Pilsner, Port Brewing Wipeout IPA, Pretty Things Field Mouse’s Farewell, Smuttynose Rhye IPA, and Lost Abbey Witch’s 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 doesn’t 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 don’t 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 wasn’t 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 can’t complain.

I had expected this place to be incredibly snooty, but it really wasn’t. I had a great time there, the service was great, and the beers were wonderful. I look forward to returning next time I’m 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 I’d 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
