“Beer Mecca”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

This is a great place to come by some form of transport that does not involve driving home. Fabulous selection of beers from around the world, very knowledgeable staff can help sort out the selections. Try a flight to sample before hoisting a half-yard (and you get the plastic container as a souvenir). Food offerings are surprisingly good for a beer hall. Special for World Cup time was a creditable effort at Brazilian fare. Only disappointment was that they no longer serve full yards, so my old keepsake container became a collector's item, hope that they bring this back!

“Many, many taps”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

In the Allston section by BC. A very large selection of draft and a larger selection of bottled beers. Very good food and plenty of choices. Good service. Worth a trip to try the craft beer selection.

“Great food & drink”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

So many beers to choose from and a delicious menu too. I had a margarita and it was delicious but everyone else at the table loved all the different beers they served. Great atmosphere too.
The staff was very friendly and there wasn't a wait either.

“Great hangout bar!”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

This place has an INCREDIBLE selection of beer. Like wow. I'm not a beer drinker but I always really appreciate that they have a good selection of cider to choose from too!
Their food is good and they've got a very diverse menu for a bar - lots of options, you can always find something you want. Prices are a little high for the food, more than I'd pay elsewhere, but it's a nice place to hang out and the service is good.
Their atmosphere is really nice too. I've come on dates and on hangout nights with my friends, it's great for both.
I've come here probably close to ten times, it's definitely good. As long as you don't mind paying a little bit for your meal, you'll have a good time.

“always love this spot”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

I've been coming here since grad school, and I still love it. Nothing beats the tortellini salad. It's a noisy and usually packed place, but it's always worth the wait.
