You just cannot beat the selection, at least in the northeast; actually I think this is the largest selection I’ve seen anywhere in New England, New York, or the midwest, and we were sure as heck excited to see a Dark Star beer on cask first thing on the beer menu! Alas, it was out. Food and ambiance are, as noted, collegiate/divey at best. Cuvee van de Kaiser in a pint glass? Worth a stop for sure though, it’s been quite a while since I’ve seen as many beers that I haven’t had in one bar.

Packed with a college crowd on a Saturday evening leaving the bathrooms somewhat messy. Friendly service with decent knowledge of what was available from the slightly out of date (month old) menu. Beer list is immense and initially almost overwhelming. With four beer geeks with over 1000 ratings each, we were still able to find several beers that none of us had tried before. Food servings were generous in size, though not spectacular - still the nachos will fill you up and allow you to stay for another round or two... I’ll definitely return here.

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 wouldn’t 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. You’re bound to find something very exciting!

Nachos are indeed wonderful here. Its a loud, busy restaurant, so not a place for a quiet, charming Boston night. The kegs are sometimes stale, and the beer just doesn’t taste right. The waitresses also have no clue about what the beers are...once I asked more about a beer’s style (because the menu is occaisionally enigmatical), and she said she’d check with the bartender.... she came back saying, &quo;it’s an Ale made in Maine&quo;. Well, I guess that was some help, but I could have read that on the menu. My advice... go to Sunset Cantina instead. Less taps, but same management, quality affordable food, and a more relaxed atmosphere.

You just have to love the amazing selection. The servers are great about putting together samplers. The food is a little pricey but the portons are hue so splitting a meal is no problem. Fun times all around.

I went to here for more than a decade when I worked in the area. My name is on the Hall of Foam downstairs. So I’m biased. Its a fun place. College crowd mixed with beer people. Sit at the bar for better service. Raspberry mayo shark sticks are a good appetizer choice, Burgers and daily specials are a good choice.

When we visited this bar I was absolutely astounded by the beer range. they have 112 taps for draft beers, and as far as I am concerned, they will be all on top form, as we tried - extensively! on our visit, and all were exemplary.
I have no qualms about this being one of the worlds best beer bars for choice, and quality. I have not rated the food although the menu looked good, but we did not order, we were taking our bread in liquid form that day. I should also mention the beer shop around the corner called Martys, wow what a range, if you go to the Sunset, go there - out of the bar turn left, left at junction, then 150 yds on right corner.

Fantastic bar. I caught it in the middle of a mass pub crawl and the bartenders still were able to keep up. Fantastic selection, all quality drafts in great condition. More than worth the $50 in cab fare I spent to get there & back! The Lindemans Framboise and DFH 120 were in stellar condition. Food was OK, but you’re not going there for the food.

I stopped by for a quick lunch and it wasn’t bad. I was able to try Weyerbacher Quad and Magic Hat Nail Biter Imperial Stout on tap, to go with slightly better than average quesadillas (I know, what was I doing ordering Mexican in Boston, but that’s neither here nor there). The selection was mildly impressive as they had a ton of offerings, but very few blew me away. It was nice to see a bunch of East Coast micros not available in the midwest. Both beers were served very cold in a tall, thin glass. While it wasn’t my favorite place, I would go back if I’m in the area again.

A beer drinkers paradise .lots of belgians, i.p.a.s,locals and interesting selections.menu done by style and beers available in many sizes. tons of breweriana . Friendly staff that seems to have fun and make good suggestions of whats new on tap ,bottle and what to eat. Love the ribs,spinach dip,appetizers and every thing we had was good. overall a definite stop for hard to find beers.
