I had heard of the place but didn’t 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, "Let’s 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 D’Or, 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: They’re a little fanatical about last call as they literally took our drinks away a few minutes after 1am. Not sure what that’s all about. Aside from that we really enjoyed our time here. Would I go back? Yes. We didn’t get to try any food but it was clear from our visit that Meadhall is a first class bar. Overall Rating: 88

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. I’d go back but again...it 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.

A great new addition to the Boston scene, next to Kendall station, perfect for a Cambridge pub crawl, including Cambrew and Lord Hobo. Over 100 taps of goodness, with regional and internation, selection of Belgian bottles (about 10), meads and scotches. Service is very friendly and definitely RB friendly. Menu is quite impressive, even for the barmenu: Great pork rinds and duck liver paté.

Very nice stop very close to both Lord Hobo and Cambridge Brewing Company. Pretty cool atmosphere with dark wood and a 360 degree bar. 100 taps which is awesome for ticks, but often bad for getting fresh beer (turn over is an issue). That said I tried several hoppy beers (Maine Brewing and Jack Abby) and all seemed very fresh. Pricing was a bit high but not terrible. Quite a few ciders and meads available too. What really completely blew my mind was that every single thing I ordered came in its own glass ware. By the end I tried to stump them by ordering the most obscure cidery I could find. Sure enough, a snifter from that cidery. Really impressive. Server was knowledgeable, but not overly friendly. I’ll definitely return the next time I am in Cambridge.

Saw an ad for this place and decided to check it out. Right next to the MIT subway stop on the red line in East Cambridge off of Broadway. Entering Meadhall, I was immediately drawn to the massive chalk board on the wall showing their 100 beers available on tap. The bar is a massive oval surrounded by both low and high tables. The lack of televisions downstairs and the cool, dim lighting offer a more intimate setting at night. We made the mistake of going upstairs where they have a much smaller bar, and a bad system of having to abandon the register to go downstairs to shag beers. Even though they had couches and televisions upstairs, we went back down after waiting 10 minutes for our first round and were much happier at the downstairs bar. The bartenders are friendly and quick to respond to empty glasses. The beer is mostly American craft beer, with 20 or so Belgian beers as well, served in their respective logoed glassware. I would rather their menu be organized by brewer instead of style (as well as pronounce the brewer a little bolder), but it does help less experienced beer drinkers choose the types of beer that they like. Definitely coming back to try the food.
