THE SALTY PIG:: 130 Dartmouth St, Boston :: 617.536.6200 or thesaltypig.com » Taps: 12 :: Bottles: 24
Pig parts! Think house-cured meats and meat and cheese boards, plus pizza. (Getting the Salty Pig pizza with farm-fresh eggs on top should be mandatory.) Bathrooms are wallpapered with The Far Side comics. Oh, and the beers are always good too.
STODDARD'S FINE FOOD & ALE:: 48 Temple Pl, Boston :: 617.426.0048 or stoddardsfoodandale.com » Taps: 20 :: Bottles: 50
From the massive carved wood bar to the pre-Prohibition bartender garb to the unbranded tap handles, it smacks of the old school. Expect a classic, sessionable, non-compromised beer selection with cask ales and the occasional über-beer-geek offering. Bonus: jm Curley is across the street.
