I don’t get it. Why would anyone want to stand in line for an hour with stroller-pushing families just to get into a noisy cramped space and wait for someone who’s clearly cooler than you to bring you beer that you could have at Sunset Grill? Because you’re a hipster. That’s why.
Stopped in for brunch on a Sunday afternoon. The bartenders and staff for friendly and jovial even with the place at full capacity. The breakfest sandwich I ordered was tasty and my buddy enjoy his burger. The draft list was pretty solid and had a few rarties. With Sunset Grill right down the road, it maybe hard for me to stop back here but it is in the relm of possiablity.
Stopped here after Sunset. Completely different vibe. Smallish inside - Great place to hang out, much more limited beer selection, but very well though out. Knowledgeable staff, correct glassware. Did not eat here though.
Visited last weekend while I was in the area. Right away I knew this is the kind of bar that’s constantly packed and cramped like a tin box of sardines: there was a line to the front door because of the limited seats available; I could smell everyone’s body odor inches from my face. Just like finding the perfect parking spot, I leapt to the nearest stool as soon as one of the full customers had left the bar. Tap list was extensive and moderately priced. I will have to say, however, that the food here was reasonably sized, but not necessarily as big as I thought it should’ve been. It’s probably no surprise, as is often the case, that I simply didn’t enjoy it all that much. I ordered an "everything" burger, which had cost me nearly $13. I could have destroyed the Happy Menu with that kind of money. It was one burger on a large bun and fries. Yawn. The bartenders here were the real stars; obviously great service and enjoyable taps means I’ll likely be back, I’ll just skip the food.
good spot, nice vibe, was somewhat previously overserved by the time I arrived (11 hill farmstead drafts will do that) Bartenders were quick & on top of things. selection was solid. I heard the tacos next door are top notch (same owner I believe)
My wife and I visited after watching our nephew play goalie for Boston College in soccer. Trendy part of town with lots of shops, restaurants and bars. Very limited seating at bar and tables. Tables are lined up next to each other on the right side while the bar is on the left side. You sit very close to your neighbor, so if you are next to a couple of drunk girls, it can hinder your experience. Selection is great both tap and bottles. Food was excellent for mostly being a bar. Service was hit and miss, as our waiter had multiple tables. Overall a good place for both beer and food.
Cool area of town that reminds me of an up and coming Bucktown. Traffic was horrible, this place is a beast to get to.
Excellent draft list with superb locals, appears to have excellent cocktails as well.
The food looks great. I had some apps, but they took over 45 minutes to get so kind of ruined my quick stop in Boston.
Cool place, worth spending time at.
Stopped in around 3pm on a friday to have some grub and sipp a few drafts before heading to NOtF. Nice classy little place with a bunch of hipster types working the bar. great selection with alot of light low abv seasonal draftss that were just what we were looking for considering we would be drinking all night long ! Anyhow good variety of locals and imports with some high end bottles on the menu list as well. Great great food ! Wow for $12 the huge plate of crispy fries topped with lemon aioli and mussels was amazing as was the duck confit breakfast and bahn mi. looking forward to heading back there with my wife someday soon.

buncha tight german brews on tap all day. neat building of brick. outdoor patio. can get crowded. cool place, always enjoy a pint of bia here. best ambiance, food, beer combo in boston area.
A proper bar though clean for Alston. The beer list isn’t huge but it’s very good. The local MA selection was extensive. There were a few German monastery brews I’ve never seen anywhere. I had one. The bottle was clearly compromised. When I mentioned this to the bartender he promptly popped another bottle to test it to the same conclusion He took both back and gave me the other option which was good. I was impressed with his commitment to quality and service. The food was really good bar food. Prices were all fair. The mixed drinks looked to be quality but I didn’t partake :)
