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 has a more corporate feel versus local pub.

Visited in early evening, very close to the Kendall station. I’d say just the right number of people in there it wasn’t 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 I’d 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 tender’s attention. I particularly like how they have a random beer on nitro at all times be it stout, porter, or IPA.

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 it’s 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 can’t really comment on the food. Service was good (it wasn’t too busy when I was in), and the prices were OK. The beer selection is enough to bring me back whenever I’m in the area.

Large space that kind of feels like a purposefully designed drinking barn (oh wait, I guess it is). A 360 bar with 100 taps so there’s plenty to choose from. I settled for a Pretty Things Jack D’Or and expect to see the likes of Jack’s Abby, Maine, Lagunitas and other breweries from the West Coast. Hard to say how fresh a lot of this stuff is though. The Belgians seemed the most popular with other patrons and there’s an impressive selection of glassware for the beers. As the name implies, a cool selection of mead is listed on the back wall. I ordered the chowder which was bland and questionable. Service was slow to begin with but once I was acknowledged things were good. All said, it’s worth coming by to check out the selection and grab a beer before setting off for the other Cambridge beery spots.

Visited during the afternoon on a weekday and had the run of the place to myself. Nice space. High ceilings, lovely 360 degrees central bar. There’s a lot of beer on tap, much of it interesting. The beer list offers a solid selection of Belgians, which seems to differentiate itself from other bars in the area. I had a Dark Penance and a brett beer from Smuttynose. Prices were OK for the area (Boston’s expensive). I didn’t eat, but the food looked solid. Overall, a must-visit if you’re in town.

When your website says you open at11:30am, and your google maps and places shows 11:30am, but your door front window says 3pm, you are a joke. I went out of my way to come here to try a specific beer to only waste my time and fight traffic.

Visited here a few times. Great selection of beer. A few meads, very expensive. They has Utopias for $25 / 1oz and I couldn’t pull the trigger! Food is very good, fries are excellent. Service is ok. Place gets super busy in the evening.

Une belle sélection sur laquelle je me suis malheureusement cogné le nez alors que quelques unes des plus intéressantes n’étaient plus disponible. Chaque bière a son verre.

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
