    One of Boston's best beer spots, there is something on tap to please every palate. Stop in at Craft Beer Cellar later to take home a mix-pack of beer from your favorite brewery/breweries! Read more

    A stylish, metropolitan bar with a New York vibe might not seem like a haven for craft beer, but Stoddard’s has emerged as a theatergoer’s destination with more than 20 oft-rotating taps. Read more

    The password is: craft beer. This speak-easy has craft beer galor and 5 beers on cask at all times. Best cask beer selection in Boston.

    I liked this place as it had a traditional British/Irish pub vibe. We opted for a local pint and fish & chips. The food was good but the portions seemed a little small and pricey. Sports channels on.

    Super nice staff that recommended a delicious local lager. I had the rib eye with mashed potatoes and asparagus, probably the best rib eye I ever had. Really recommend this place!!

    Swanky and stylish, Stoddard's has an amazing selection of craft beers and sophisticated atmosphere. Check out the bar in the basement when the main floor gets busy.

    Great craft beer selection and pretty good food as well. That being said, don't order their Gouda & cask ale fondue, it's not nearly as good as it sounds.

    Delicious burgers and wonderful selection of craft brews. Can get busy on the weekends so make a reservation if you are coming for dinner.

    Drink cocktails from Jerry Thomas’ 1868 book How to Mix Drinks, like The Deal Breaker which involves Wild Turkey 101, Campari, Grand Marnier, Amaro Montenegro, and a weird fascination with its mother. Read more

    Great for drinks and good ambiance, but my experience with food is that it's frozen / pre-prepared. Would come here for cocktails only.

    This is the closest craft beer bar to our Boston office. They have some of the most knowledgeable bartenders (Jamie and Dan) in Boston.

    Fun place, good food. Wanted to try some cool beers but our waitress couldn't recommend anything. She said we could ask for samples so we did, but she brought us full bottles. Get better waiters.

    Excellent cocktails. Try the Zombie if you want to fast-forward to dancing naked on a table - ace but strong drink :)

    Solid lobster roll here. Bread is thin (good) and they add a little bacon on top for good measure!

    Entrées make great use of local rabbit and cod and heritage pork. This gastropub also serves a fine charcuterie plate with quail-egg sausage and rabbit ballotine, plus the best chicken pot pie ever. Read more

    DO NOT come here & order a Bud Light or a Sam Adams. Get a beer on tap - so many delicious, everchanging options & nice bartenders to recommend something for you. Read more

    Great selection of beers on tap, and the Zombie cocktail is an irresistible combo with absinthe and flambeed cherry (among other ingredients)

    If the downstairs bar is open, don't pass it up. Make friends with the bartender and order a Last Word. Herbaceous and refreshing.

    Sazerac and Boulevardier, both excellent whiskey cocktails and so well done here.

    Lobster Hush Puppies are spectacular here. Lots of beers on tap, but the cask ales are served correctly (read: a bit warm).

    Since the taps are so spread out and change so often, you'll want to ask for a draft menu.

    Was having a lovely evening downstairs in the bar until we saw a huge cocaroach scaling the brick wall. When we showed it to the waitress she insisted we be quiet!!

    This is more a bar than a foodie destination. But it's Old Boston, for good and for ill.

    Swordfish special atop sun dried tomato grits & kale celery salad was outstanding.

    The bathrooms downstairs are phenomenal... Pretend to walk in for a beer and bead to the back right, you won't be disappointed!

    Nice beer selection. Bartender misheard my drink order though so kind of a loud place. Good for groups though.

    The menu offers things like "Mushroom Stuffed Quail" and "Saddle Of Roast Monkfish." Did we mention a rotation of 25 cask ales?

    Good ingredients but the 2 dishes we had were bland. The tartar sauce and ranch dressing tasted like butter. And the fish and chips needed some salt.

    Not the place if you truly care about craft cocktails. Interesting drinks, but if you're charging a premium, take more than 20 seconds (twice). Oh, and "It's late, I can't recommend anything"? Really?
