Jacob Wirth (address and info)
No list of beer bars would be worth a seidel, or more accurately, a chalice, without paying homage to of one Boston’s oldest beer halls. Jacob Wirth was a pioneering beer aficionado, THE first distributor of Anheuser Busch products, and founder of Narragansett Beers. This beer-saturated landmark might be the most iconic spot on the list. The menu changes daily, with 46 offerings at the taps and an emphasis on authentic German styles that can’t "guarantee availability, but can always guarantee freshness". They even have gluten-free beers, like the Belgian Green's Tripel. For 146 years this has been the spot on the cusp of the Theater District/China Town to "prost a stein". One word to the wise -- indulging in schnitzels, wursts, Sauerbraten, and Spaten lager may lead to meat sweats and St. Pauli Girl-hallucinations.
