If you’re in the Brookline area looking for a place with great food and an outstanding beer selection, it’s in your best interest to go to the Publick House. Conveniently located at 1648 Beacon Street in Washington Square in Brookline, close to both of our bed and breakfast locations, this is not your typical Boston bar. Serious beer drinkers will be pleased with the selection.
The menu proudly proclaims “No Shots, No Pitchers” and avoids the typical Coors/Miller/Bud trifecta in favor of a more eclectic mix of American and international microbrews, with a heavy emphasis on Belgian beers. With 36 selections on draught and 100+ by the bottle, you may find yourself overwhelmed with choices!
The Publick House menu offers a wide variety reasonably priced home-style comfort food and appetizers, including an assortment of burgers and sandwiches, beef stew, meatloaf, and fish and chips. Food and Wine Magazine declared their famous mac and cheese “Best in the US” and we heartily recommend trying it..
You might want to head down there early on the weekends! Because the Publick House has such an extensive beer selection and untouchable menu, it attracts an eclectic demographic of locals and out-of-towners. While you wait for your table, you can just take a few steps over to the bar and decide which beer you want to try as that may take a while! If you’re indecisive while choosing what to have at the Publick House, the friendly staff are knowledgeable in the beer selection and ready to offer their insight.
Their hours of operation run from 5:00 pm to 2:00 am, a great time to enjoy your dinner and unwind! Our 1750 location is conveniently located just a block away from the Publick House, so book a room with us and you can safely walk home after your night out.
