I feel like Iíve just stepped into Miami here! Just kidding. Nice enough beer selection but nothing I got overly giddy about. Perhaps with distribution these days and with so many great beer bars out there I felt underwhelmed with my visit. It definitely has that booze barn vibe and Iíd come back another time for a feed and get my drink on. Or maybe not. Nice mead selection though, assuming they were all in stock. Fun spot that warrants a visit anyway.

A popular neighbourhood bar (quite close to Deep Ellum) with a very busy beer list - eight pages of beers, 45 different meads and 15 ciders. In total I counted 112 taps and 380 bottles! There are two main rooms upstairs and another one downstairs (also where the toilets are; I mention this because one of the stalls in the ladies is reserved for the employee of the month!). One of the upstairs rooms is quite large and has lots of beer paraphernalia neatly displayed on the walls giving it a bright and cheerful feel. The service was very friendly and the beer was nicely served and in good condition. (Visited 28 October 2012).

Enormous selection printed on a sheet format menu that changes every month. They have both the advantage and disadvatages of it.. For one, waiters may have a hard time to keep up with what’s on and what’s not. They didn’t charge me for a good 4oz of mead since it was the end of the bottle and the glass was supposed to be 5oz, this was a nice attention I found, but our waitress was certainly friendlier than most. Then the freshness seemed a concern for some of the products, both in bottles and on tap and the glassware is not the best. They seem to just happened to be well located and be in it for the money and safing on the trend rather than being truly beer dedicated if you can say. Californian feel, young crowd. Very good service. A very wothwhile experience still.

Probably the best selection I have ever seen. Didnít even think about the bottles, as three were so many interesting taps. Waiter was attentive, maybe a bit too much so. Please was a bit crowded and loud. doesnít seem like a place to go chat with folks, but to go with your mates and get some amazing beers. Prices are very reasonable and my burger was great too.

Humongous selection of bottles and taps, takes forever to go through! AND we have to make a choice within this...such torture! ;) Service was very friendly and pretty knowledgeable of what was available. Food we ordered was very ordinary, so I probably wouldnít eat here the next time I go. Gouden Carolus Keizer and Cantillon Foufoune on tap just cannot disappoint. Even if there are duds in the tap line and bottle selection (as others have said), I would still come back here to see what they have. Youíre bound to find something very exciting!

huge draft list but mostly commonly available stuff, lots of marcoish stuff run down decor, not pleasant. Best mead spot in the world, only reason to come here.

Another fantastic Boston beer temple. A typical american pub look, but the tap selection is amazing, even stellar. And they offer various types of flights, 4X 4on, 4 X 2 on, price depends on beers chosen. The food menu is good pub grub with generous portions. Another must go!

No doubt the biggest tap selection in Boston, with some rarities and plenty of New England stuff. Sat at the bar and quaffed a couple. Donít know whether I was just unlucky but, although there is a big printed beer list, a couple of things I asked for transpired to have run out. Docked a point from the selection score for that. Service was friendly enough but a little distracted and slow, even on a quiet Monday afternoon. Note to bartender Ė even though there may only be two people sat at the bar that is not really any excuse for disappearing to do your own thing and only checking back every 15 minutes or so to see whether any service is required, then being surprised when I ordered another pint with half the previous one left. Despite these niggles itís an essential stop in Boston and I probably just caught it on an off day. Difficult to judge the ambience at such a quiet time. Didnít eat. Prices seemed reasonable for Boston.

HUGE bar. As far as places for beer geeks are concerned this is pretty much as big as they get. I didnít car much for the atmosphere and the pop fm radio music. Too big and felt too much like a restaurant with good beers. I much prefer the atmosphere of cosier smaller pubs. However in this case size does matter. Thanks to its large crowd the bar can afford to have 112 beers on tap. In case you thought I made a typo Iíll spell it, thatís ONE HUNDREAD AND TWELVE taps. Plus a bottle menu that goes on and on. I kept the tap/bottle menu. Here are some beers that were ON TAP while I was there: Des Rocs Triple Imperial, Allagash Curieux, Pechť Mortel, Southern Tier Unearthly, etc. You get the picture. Food is typical pub food of average quality. Service is what youíd expect from a place packed with hundreds of people. Prices are fair, not cheap but fair. Really worth a detour. Go there for the selection and food to start the night off and then move on to the cosier Brookline Public House.
