I had heard of the place but didnít know where it was then low and behold we walk past it heading to Lord Hobo. We had to stop in. The tap list was ridiculously good. I think it was over 100 taps and they were doing a firkin tapping. The atmosphere was slightly higher class but still somewhat dark. The pricing was sort of all over the place with plenty of things on point but some being really expensive ($12 for Ovila?). Service was very good. I enjoyed myself regardless.

My top spot in the Boston area. Very good selection of beers both local and from far away. The big wood bar is gorgeous and welcoming If you are in the area, GO!

A friend of mine likes to say, "Letís go to a bar so wise that they force you to have each beer in the proper glassware." And every time, we always end up here. Tremendous selection, decent prices, good service, and everything comes in the appropriate type of glass.

When I visited: Mid-September 2013. What I had: Pretty Things Jack DíOr, Allagash Black, and Pretty Things Meadowlark IPA on tap, a few white wines for my girlfriend. What I liked: Attractive, winding bar, nice cosmopolitan vibe, incredible draught list, efficient bartender made good recommendations, all beers are served in their proper, branded glassware, decent prices. What I disliked: Theyíre a little fanatical about last call as they literally took our drinks away a few minutes after 1am. Not sure what thatís all about. Aside from that we really enjoyed our time here. Would I go back? Yes. We didnít get to try any food but it was clear from our visit that Meadhall is a first class bar. Overall Rating: 88

First impressions: so many taps! What a great place! Selection is top-notch. Tons of IPAs (and PAs, and IIPAs). Good imperial stouts, even though itís summer. I finally got to try Founders KBS! New England and US craft beer is the focus, but many good European beers too. Only had a few snacks so I canít really comment on the food. Service was good (it wasnít too busy when I was in), and the prices were OK. The beer selection is enough to bring me back whenever Iím in the area.

Visited in early evening, very close to the Kendall station. Iíd say just the right number of people in there it wasnít crowded or empty. Felt a bit upscale, modern bar. Tap selection is impressive. Diversity of beer styles, mostly US and some Belgian and German brews. Yes, there are lots of classics which most tickers have tried, but I believe everyone should be able to find something for themselves. Selection makes up for a bit lacking atmosphere. Without a question Iíd come back, and spend an evening or two.

The first thing you notice on walking in is the impressive number of taps behind the bar. They have a vast selection on draft and a good number of bottles to choose from as well. The food is quite good, though mostly your standard pub fare. Service is usually very helpful and attentive but after work hours on a Thursday or Friday it can be very difficult to get the bar tenderís attention. I particularly like how they have a random beer on nitro at all times be it stout, porter, or IPA.

Second stop while in Boston. A very modern "look" with an upscale feeling. I personally like the local "joint" feeling better but that is fine. Lots of people eating...but I did not so I cannot comment on the food. Service was fine for a Saturday afternoon. They were busy but the bartender kept up and was friendly enough. Some very nice people I spoke to at the bar. Great selection. They had Firestone Walker Ann 17 on draft! NICE! Overall it was fine. Prices were average. Iíd go back but has a more corporate feel versus local pub.

A huge hall-like place with a separate bar upstairs. The taps seemed to go on forever, so the list was extensive. Nothing really shockingly unusual, but solid enough. The special treat was the mead. Normally mead is not my favorite, but the three meaderies they had one were spectacular. Great way to close out an evening after drinking sours all night at the Night of the Funk.
