I stopped in at BEERWORKS Brewing Company in Boston, Massachusetts for dinner and a taste of beers. I enjoyed the Pear and Sprout Salad with Grilled Chicken and also enjoyed a flight of beers. Everything from Pilsner to Porter to Altbier to IPA were very good. The beer that, hands down, captured my attention was the Blue 92 Light American Ale with Maine blueberries. The bartender even tosses a few fresh blueberries in the bottom of the glass. There’s enough blueberry flavor to be significant but not too much to be overpowering. The beer is sweet but not too sweet. It is light and easy to drink. Absolutely delicious!
I stopped in at Cape Cod Beer in Hyannis, Massachusetts and tasted the Summer Ale which was light and refreshing. I also picked up a four pack of IPA and or Red for a beach outing. These both delivered as advertised with the IPA living up to it’s slogan “It’s Got a Bite” and the Red living up to it’s slogan Red – Right – Return. Both were in 16 ounce cans – perfect for a beach bonfire. As Cape Cod Beer says – there’s “A Vacation in Every Pint”. So, take a vacation!
I stopped in at Trillium Brewing Company in Boston, Massachusetts and had a small taste of the Pot & Kettle Oatmeal Porter. Wow! This must have been one of the most smooth, drinkable porters I’ve had. Delicious! Stopping in from out of town I wasn’t really able to take out a growler – didn’t have enough time to enjoy it. The tap room is a really neat historic/industrial space. I hope to be able to stop in here again the next time I’m in Boston.
I stopped in at Harpoon Brewery in Boston, Massachusetts again (8/5/15) – after lunch at Yankee Lobster Company and before heading to Boston Logan airport. After having clam chowder and fried clam strips for lunch I needed a good beer before heading home. The Nordic Saison hit it! I enjoyed the refreshing tartness of the beer. Wish I could have stayed for more but my flight was calling for me. Can’t wait to visit Boston again and stop in at Harpoon!
I stopped in at the Harpoon Brewery in Boston, Massachusetts and enjoyed the tour. We toured through the brewing facility and saw the entire operation. And, during the tour we enjoyed tastings of a number of beers. My favorite was the Rye IPA.
The brewery has quite a tap room and is a great place to stop in for a beer. The tour is great and I highly recommend it.
I stopped in at the Boston Beer Company in Boston, Massachusetts for the brewery tour. I completely recommend this tour. Our tour guide, Amanda, was really funny and very informative. She went through the entire brewing process and showed us the research brewery. The facility in Boston is now only for research and development. The production brewing is now done elsewhere. And, of course, at the end of the tour we sampled Sam Adams Boston Lager and Summer Ale. We all know the trademark taste of Sam Adams Boston Lager. For many folks this was the Renaissance of beer back in the day.
