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!

Nice place! Laid back, fun atmosphere, while also a little classy and hosts to the Kendall/MIT/Tech Start up crowd. I recommend this place and look forward to returning.

Beautiful space with a huge oval shaped natural wood bar, high ceiling and big windows that open on nice days.
110 taps of very good beers, but mostly accessible beers. Not the place you’re going to find that single keg of something rare. It does all seem to be fresh, though, and they make a point to serve every beer in the brewery’s logo glass, which is nice, if not a novelty.
The food is tasty, but a little pricey. Very much following the gastropub trend. And the menu is limited.
Service is the major flaw. You never know when someone is going to bother to check on you or take your order.
Overall, lots of potential, but a long way to go to realize it. A good place to stop by for a fresh pint, but after one I’m usually out of there.

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.

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.

100 beers on tap. One available under 6 bucks. That’s right genessee at tap for 3.50. Two floors. Clean modern look. Somewhat cold. Needs to be broken in. Nice crowd but plenty of space. Careful when ordering as about 15 percent of the menu is sold out.

Stopped in here to check out the new beer bar scene. This place is pretty damned nice. Specific glassware for every brewery, poured well, with very helpful, friendly bartenders. The food was great and I wanted to keep eating different things off the menu. They have lots of local and sustainable food options. Prices were fair. More a statement of New England beer bars than anything else, this is the kind of place that may have 100 beers on tap, but only 2-3 of them are limited in distribution or one-offs (an example from when I was there as Pretty Things EIP). Maybe New England brewers aren’t cranking out the one-offs, but beer bars (Deep Ellum is an exception) aren’t making a point of having them on tap.
A recent visit on 12/28/2011. A downgrade. Service was very slow and forgetful. The prices were now noticeably higher than surrounding places and the forced pour size infuriates me.
