Truck Hoods and Local Beers in Kendall

Trucks from the ’80s.

No frills. Just solid construction. Sturdy. Reliable. Steel.

And as it turns out, their hoods make for some pretty great tables to eat on.

Behold: Firebrand Saints, a new industrial-chic house of local beers and evolving art to hit up while in Kendall Square, soft-open now.

The big draw here is the interior. Think: chairs made from recycled Coke bottles. Tables constructed from old 1980s truck hoods (Ford, GMC, perhaps the rogue Mazda). A bar made from the wood of a 130-year-old New England barn that fell during a hurricane (not Irene). Even a wall devoted to a light-based Etch A Sketch thing that recreates interesting Google street views (no shaking required).

As for food: it’ll change daily, offering you everything from porchetta sandwiches using pigs sourced from Vermont to whole cage-free chickens roasted in a French rotisserie. All of which will go well with a few cold local drafts (Pretty Things, Notch) or one of the made-from-scratch, old-timey bourbon milkshakes, followed by a liquored-up banana split.

Other way around works, too.
