    If you like Guinness then try the O'Hara's on draft! Same type of Irish Stout but with 100x more flavor than Guinness - and Guinness is/was my favorite beer.

    If you like Guinness then try an O'Hara's at the Publick House. Look at the picture. How amazing do those triplets look?!

    Huge beer list - ask for samples! As for the menu, the fig salad is great and they do a bang up job with their moules frites. Read more

    The Publick House is home to The Monk’s Cell. In the door and up the ramp to you left is our exclusively Belgian Beer department, where all of the drafts are reserved for beers from Belgium.

    Like a promised land for craft beer fanatics, The Publick House has a droolworthy draft and bottle selection of Belgian and American beers. http://is.gd/5i5mdx

    Go to the Publick House for the best Belgian beer bar in Boston, by far. Enjoy a beer with the frites, a cheese plate, or the mac & cheese.

    If you like fancy beer (or cider) this is the place for you. Also plenty of great eats. Have to get the moules frites, also the cheese and charcuterie platters are well done.

    McChouffe is almost always on tap and is always delightful. Frites with chipotle mayo are a must.

    The best restaurant made mac-n-cheese you will ever have, never a dull beer moment. Go early weeknights. The weekend crowd causes an unfortunate wait and not much room to order while-you-wait drinks.

    Get the bucket of mussels #1 (basic) and #4 (corn and bacon) are awesome, #3 (garlic bread crumbs + cheese + spinach) is a little too flyover state.

    Food is Amazing, beer list is endless. One of the best bars in the city. Bill can add up quick, so if you're just interested in drinks try their sister bar American Craft down the street.

    The beer haven for Washington Square and Boston alike. Mac & Cheese is famous. Truffle fries always hit the spot. If you like Coors, stay home.

    The best thing about The Publick House is its extensive selection of rare (at least in the U.S.) Belgian beers, but the Monk Fries in a paper cone are a close second. Eat some with truffle ketchup.
