I stopped by for a quick lunch and it wasnít 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 thatís 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 wasnít my favorite place, I would go back if Iím in the area again.

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.

Wow. What a place. The theme: Go Big or go home. So many beers, absolutely ridiculous categorization (I was speechless after reading the style notes and description for Sam Adams Triple Bock). The food is average, quite American and over-cheesed. Huge portions, good prices on most of the draft beers. Always crowded, but in a good way. Itís nice to get fresh beer on tap from some of the best breweries (Stone, DFH, etc. . ). Drink alot of beers and keep track on your card and you get your name on a bar stool. how about that. For as huge a place as this, the waitresses do try hard to be attentive. It is rather dirty (relatively speaking) with some issues with old beers, but I think this is offset by the sheer number they have.
