New Cask Wednesday every week! Amazing Beer Dinners and events here. And on a regular day, it's just as fantastic. Suzanne and Kate have done a great thing with this place -- creating a laid-back, down-home, friendly place to hang out, grab a few pints and have your pick of an array of bar grub.

From a huge tap menu to an even bigger bottle menu, there is something for everyone here. From beer novices to experts looking to be wowed... give this place a shot. It's one of the most popular bars in all of Cambridge, and rightfully so!

They have accommodated many a large beer meetup group here, and they're really really passionate about beer. It shows in what they bring in and the events they host.

I love this place. If I lived closer, this would definitely be where everybody knows MY name.

Located along Mass Ave near a couple colleges (what part of Boston isn't located near a couple colleges?), near some other restaurants. There is street parking and free parking behind the restaurant, but spaces are limited and probably fills up quickly when busy. Public transportation is available, with Porter to the north, and Havard to the south. It's a bit of a walk, but the area is definitely designed for walkers.

There is a street-side entrance and a back entrance, but either way you need to make your way to the front to be seated. There are several outdoor benches along the street, which is great for a nice day. The inside had some tables and booths, but also a rather large bar with lots of seating. There are also flat panel TVs above the bar. The bar area gets pretty packed during peak times.

The beer list was great, and includes a cask option. The main food menu has a list of beer options, but there is a paper one that lists the actual beers. There are plenty of the standard American Lager style beers available, as well as around 30 craft beers, of just about every style, as well as some rare beers. There is certainly something for everyone. The prices for the beers are also very cheap, many under $4, for a full pint glass.

The food varied, and comes with the standard pub food, but also very good. I ordered the English Burger (served on a large English muffin) and was one of the best burgers I've ever had. I also ordered curly-fries.

The service wasn't fast but it wasn't slow either. The waitress was very nice and had no problem splitting the check for us. I'm not sure if it's harder to get to people outside as quickly as inside.

The bottom of the menu mentions that you should ask questions since they are beer geeks. I guess that can make you feel more confident that you will have a good beer experience. I never heard of this place until my sister took me to it, and I'm glad she did. This is definitely a great establishment and should be a beer destination for you at one point or time.
