The easiest way to satisfy all hopheads is to start-slash-end the night at this yawning Kendall Square beer hall. The centerpiece of the modern, two-story room is the massive U-shaped bar lined with close to 100 taps. A huge chalkboard announces the daily roundup (the mead menu is separate); any aficionado worth his or her malt will drool over the massive glassware collection paired to what’s on tap. You can’t eat at the bar, but separate seating areas let you try out the fried calamari, poutine and flatbread pizzas.
