2016 Winner: The Rising

Boston, lest you haven’t noticed, takes sports seriously. The great thing about the Rising, just opened in January, is that it takes everything else seriously too. There’s excellent Irish gastropub-inspired eats, especially the poutine-stuffed brunch menu. Draft lines are mostly dedicated to craft beers, and the wine list, not typically a priority at a sports bar, offers 30 quality bottles at $30. Finally: a spot that even non-fans won’t mind going to on gamedays.
