Second stop while in Boston. A very modern "look" with an upscale feeling. I personally like the local "joint" feeling better but that is fine. Lots of people eating...but I did not so I cannot comment on the food. Service was fine for a Saturday afternoon. They were busy but the bartender kept up and was friendly enough. Some very nice people I spoke to at the bar. Great selection. They had Firestone Walker Ann 17 on draft! NICE! Overall it was fine. Prices were average. Iíd go back but again...it has a more corporate feel versus local pub.
Stopped here after drinking all night at the Copenhagen Beer Fest. Had the Poutine as my late night snack. I found the beer list decent and able to order a Wakefield beer that was fantastic if not very expensive @ $15 a glass.
Itís a great big space very close to the Cambridge Marriott and a parking garage. Lots of taps but nothing to exotic. Kind of a beer geek greatest hits taplist but not a lot new. Food and service were solid enough but itís pricey. Itís a nice place if youíre in the area, but I donít think itís a destination place.
Visited in Februari 2016. Last stop of the evening, we wanted a beer each and some mead. Huge selection of beer but at first we didnít even see any mead. When we found it, it was a really short list. Service was horrible, extremely slow and uninterested in helping us. We had the beer, a glass of mead and left. Would not go back.
Ambiance ranges from rock to hip hop mostly from the 90ís for nostalgia purposes.
Bar counter seating, table seating, second floor with more table seating. Dimly lit and great for groups or dates.
Pours are pretty standard but a lot of great beers always on tap and the food is just as great.
Staff are knowledgeable about the food and beer, happy to provide help whenever needed.
Big place with lots of taps, around 100 taps from all around the world. The price list is quite expensive though but all their beers are served in the proper glassware: brewer glass + style glass so I guess that can explain the prices. And Iím only talking about the draft beer. Bottles are inaccessibly high.
Quite crowded and noisy place. I could sure spend a few hours / days here drinking all the great beers they have. My wallet wouldnít be too happy about that though.
We visited Meadhall straight after our inaugural trip to Lord Hobo. It must only be about a 10 minute walk away. Inside it is rather large and modern, perhaps lacking in a bit of personal character. The array of tap handles behind the bar is an imposing site. They offer up to 100 beers of draught which is pretty bonkers. As such the selection is pretty varied from plenty ďcraftyĒ nationals such as Lagunitas, Sierra Nevada , Stone etc to more local and more obscure offerings. Iím sure most people would find a few beverages worth sampling! I had some Kent Falls, Allagash and Founders. Highlight of the visit was the hot sauce barrel-aged Founders IPAÖ.! Had a pretty fun time all in all. One of Bostonís best beer bars.
Visited in early evening, very close to the Kendall station. Iíd say just the right number of people in there it wasnít crowded or empty. Felt a bit upscale, modern bar. Tap selection is impressive. Diversity of beer styles, mostly US and some Belgian and German brews. Yes, there are lots of classics which most tickers have tried, but I believe everyone should be able to find something for themselves. Selection makes up for a bit lacking atmosphere. Without a question Iíd come back, and spend an evening or two.
The first thing you notice on walking in is the impressive number of taps behind the bar. They have a vast selection on draft and a good number of bottles to choose from as well. The food is quite good, though mostly your standard pub fare. Service is usually very helpful and attentive but after work hours on a Thursday or Friday it can be very difficult to get the bar tenderís attention. I particularly like how they have a random beer on nitro at all times be it stout, porter, or IPA.
