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’ve been going for more than a decade. 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. Have been trying to be better about proper glassware lately. Don’t get here as much as I use to.

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.

I've only been there once, but I was impressed. Quick service, very knowledgeable staff and a huge selection of beer. You can get a samplier of any beer on tap for a reasonable price. The food was good, but to be honest I was so hungry when I got there I would have eaten white bread with ketchup on it. The 8 samples that were delivered to us all were in fine shape including the cask conditioned one. I'll be sure to go back the next time I'm the area.

With over 100 beers on tap and 400+ in the bottle you can't go wrong for selection but a great selection means nothing when half the beer is old and it is being poured in to soapy chipped glasses. Bottles are hit or miss as far as freshness and some of the tap selections are spotty. There is a no refund policy in effect ... so if they serve you a bad beer you are out of luck and they will charge you for it.
The food tends to be over cooked with a heat lamp character to it. The service can be slow at times and well ... not accommodating if the problem of spoiled beer is served. I will never go back here until someone can prove me worng.
