Best of Boston

2015 Best Beer Bar

Publick House

Several craft-beer haunts opened this year, but our hops-loving hearts still belong to the Publick House. Draft selections in the triple digits and a phone-book-thick menu don’t always make a great beer bar, so we especially appreciate its carefully curated draft and bottle list. The amiable staff of beer experts, excellent food, and dark, oaky ambiance seal the deal.
