5. The Lower Depths Tap Room
Wander away from Lansdowne's mega bars to this beer geek nirvana with more than 40 IPAs in bottle and on tap, plus a murderer's row of lambics, Flemish sours, stouts, and Belgian ales. Find one to pair with your $1 Fenway frank or $2 foot long, appropriately pimped out with toppings like anchovies, black beans, bacon, and beer cheese.
