The Brewer's Art is just a few blocks from my house and my favorite place to visit for Happy Hour. They brew their own beer on site, many in the Belgian style - with 'classics' such as OZZY and RESSURECTION. Each style has a unique class. The bartenders are extremely friendly and the big open windows give great light out to charles street.
The crowd varies by time, from after work Hopkins and office workers, to bike messengers to a younger (hipper?) crowd that congregates downstairs in the dungeon bar late in the evenings.
The restaurant in back is in the parlor rooms of this beautifully restored mansion and serves up some of the best food in town. It is also fun to wind your way through a loud and fun crowd and then be in the quiet, dark pannelled restaurant.
Check it out - I may even be there!
