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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

We stopped at this place after a traffic-plagued journey up from New York, hoping to encounter the finest beer selection in town, and we were not disappointed - the tap list was solid, and some of the bottled products were shockingly awesome (alesmith, founders), and all of them were very reasonably priced (Alesmith Horny Devil 750 for a bar price of 13.99, unbeatable) - however, our joy quickly faded, because the service was downright terrible - it was a Friday night, and it was rather busy, and our server was not only on his first day of work, he seemed completely incapable of doing his job properly - it took nearly 40 minutes to get our beer (not to mention our food), and when he got them to us, one of them wasnít what we had ordered - thankfully, the manager tried his best to make it right, getting more beers for us, and attending to us personally - the food, while in generous portions, wasnít very good - the atmosphere was rather confusing also (a mexican cantina that serves craft beer?) - too many college brats running about, also - dispite my complaints, however, their prices and selection will most certainly get me back there the next time Iím in town - I wouldnít give such a low mark for service, since the manager was rather apologetic and attentive, but what kind of place puts the new guy on for the Friday night rush?

The tap & bottle list is kind of obnoxious, but endearing at the same time. Efficient staff thatís clearly been in the beer game for awhile. Laid back place for drinking a few pints.
