    14Jacob Wirth, Boston's favorite German Ale House since 1868, pours from an extensive beer list and delivers a 1/4 pound Angus beef burger with a Bud Light draft for just $5 every Mon-Frid until 2pm.

    Love the history and story behind Jacob Wirth (see link below). Check above the bar, SUUM CUIQUE, Latin for, “Each his own.” Great selection of beers & comfort food. Nice to go to pre/post theater. Read more

    The best place to spend a night around Christmas time drinking beer and singing Christmas carols. During the non-holiday season, the German beer selection is best in Boston. Pair it with a braut.

    Friday's sing-alongs are fun!

    They have Schneider Aventinus on tap, so complex and unlike anything else out there.

    Beer heaven, fresh cornbread and potato pancakes! Wow better hit the gym in the morning or gain 5 pounds in a single sitting.

    German food at it's best! Fried pickles, beer pitchers, potato pancakes, wienerschnitzel, and a great piano sing-a-long on Fridays!

    Don't go on a hot day, unless you want an excuse to drink more beers (great strategy). Not really well ventilated but food/beer selection is great before a show. Read more

    The Spaten Lager and the German Mixed Grill are a killer combo...if you're a big sausage fan of course.

    Not on the beer menu often, the cask conditioned ales are not to be missed.

    Drink a German beer here that you've never tried before. I recommend the Aventinus. Cheers.

    The Schneider Adventinus is a must. Add a good burger for a complete experience.

    Ask for the vegetarian menu if you re one!

    The Sam Adams Boston Brick Red is pretty much impossible to find anywhere outside of Boston, and it may very well be the perfect beer. Make sure to try it here.

    Graham J. · April 12, 2011
  • Faith F.

    If you're looking for light fare, go for the potato pancakes.

    Faith F. · January 22, 2011
  • Jamie C.

    Cornbread is bomb! The veal was soooo tender, I cut it with a butter knife. Definitely a must try! Sometimes they have groupon deals too! Sign up for groupon!

    Crowded and constantly busy, but in this case that's part of the appeal. Huge selection of beer and great food, but the service can be slow at times.

    The atmosphere is great without it but the live music adds a certain charm to the place.

    Their small plates versions of bigger dishes are pretty hefty.

    If you're willing to spend a little extra on a beer, try the Aventinus - it's phenomenal.

    Please pull the inner door to as you enter and exit in wintertime. Also, don't sit at the door end of the bar.

    They'll often have beers not listed on any menu. Make sure to ask if they have anything special on tap.
