Visited on my first day in Boston bizarrely after alighting in Kendall Square yet missing CBC. A large modern space in biotech country. Reggae and metallic modernism. But a formidable tap list. My waitress was frankly cute and the meatloaf while modestly portioned by US standards was very tasty. As others note it is not the cheapest and typically you get a 14oz glass (albeit specific for each brewery). Foolishly perhaps I decided to fill out my New England portfolio rather than extend my limited style palate. Imperial stout fans are well served.
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.
It’s 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 it’s pricey. It’s a nice place if you’re in the area, but I don’t think it’s 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 didn’t 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 90’s 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 I’m 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 wouldn’t 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 “crafty” nationals such as Lagunitas, Sierra Nevada , Stone etc to more local and more obscure offerings. I’m 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 IPA….! Had a pretty fun time all in all. One of Boston’s best beer bars.
Visited in early evening, very close to the Kendall station. I’d say just the right number of people in there it wasn’t 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 I’d come back, and spend an evening or two.
