1. Sunset Grill & Tap 130 Brighton Ave, Allston, MA 02134 (Allston Brighton)

Although this Allston spot is known primarily for its HUGE beer selection (nearly 400) -- which makes sense, because this joint is right near BU and is in the frat/party central area of the campus -- it's also got a massive food menu to boast about. It features everything you could possibly think of, including nachos, BBQ ribs, fish tacos, 1/2 lb. burgers, fajitas, and a bunch more. If you aren't coming here hungry, there must be something wrong.

2. Park 59 JFK St, Cambridge, MA 02138 (Harvard Square)

This stately tavern and lounge has four distinct areas for imbibing and masticating, both of which you'll want to do considering the beer list is loaded with more than 50 choices and the food menu features options like slow roasted brisket, braised lamb belly and a number of other meaty options and sides.

3. Meadhall 4 Cambridge Center, Cambridge, MA 02142 (Kendall Square)

This loungy, semi-industrial beer castle plates upscale lunch-thru-late night vittles (from an egg-topped steak tartare w/ anchovy vinaigrette to a signature VT turkey, bacon & avocado club), and pours over 100 draughts (including Peak Hop Noir, Wee Heavy Scottish Ale, McChouffe Brown, Hoptical Illusion, and Storm King Stout) in a 32-table (plus upstairs lounge) space.

Run by husband-and-wife team Dan and Kristen Valachovic (Mr. and Mrs. "Vee", get it?), this cozy JP joint's got American fare, craft beers, and artisanal wines from local wellsprings.

5. Grendel's Den 89 Winthrop St, Cambridge, MA 02138 (Harvard Square)

This Harvard Square hot spot is home to all walks of life (read: Harvard and Cambridge students). Grab one of their unique brew choices and relax in the bar that noted Harvard hottie Natalie Portman used to hang in.
