    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.

    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 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.
