What the Sunset Grill & Tap lacks in atmosphere—it’s located in Boston’s Allston Village neighborhood, the heart of the city’s “college ghetto,” and it feels like it, especially on Friday and Saturday nights—the bar makes up for in beer selection.
Sunset has more than 100 taps on at any given time, with everything from brand new local craft brews to barrel-aged Belgians. And Sunset offers roughly 350 bottled brews, making Sunset’s craft beer selection the largest in the city of Boston. The bartenders are friendly and surprisingly knowledgeable. For these reasons, the Sunset Grill & Tap in Allston, Mass., makes my list of Boston’s best beer bars.
