Fodor's Review

In the heart of student heaven, the Sunset looks, at first glance, like any neighborhood hangout. But venture inside and you'll be bowled over by its good promise to host the "365-days-a-year beer festival" with a staggering 500 choices of beer, 112 of them on tap. Forget pallid domestics: try an unpronounceable but appetizing brew from faraway places—seasonals, cask-conditioned, Belgians, wheats, stouts. If you're really thirsty, order a "half-yard"; if curious, order a flight sampler. There are ciders and meads, too. Brewing excellence is matched by fine eats, like steam burgers and curly fries, served until 1 am. Success has spawned spinoffs: there's Sunset Cantina next door and Mexican-themed Patron's at 916 Commonwealth Avenue.
