December's Where to Drink Now: Lord Hobo

Don't let the name fool you; this Cambridge beer bar is no slouch. Lord Hobo’s beer list is impressive, which comes as no surprise considering that owner Daniel Lannigan also runs the lauded Moan & Dove and Dirty Truth Beer Hall. Hard-to-find rarities from Denmark, Belgium and the U.K. are interspersed with American craft favorites among 35 taps, 40 bottles and three cask lines. And the cocktail program is just as striking with a focus on ubiquitous classics as well as house-made concoctions. The food menu should also not be overlooked, offering an opulent take on American bistro fare. Future plans call for adding a brunch menu and more brews, but for now Kendall Square locals have more than enough to keep their inner beer, cocktail and foodie geeks satisfied.
