Of Sub-Par Festivals

My girlfriend and I had the misfortune of attending Granite State on Tap last weekend. The festival is part of the America on Tap festival company, which puts on “Authentic Festivals,” as its logo’s tag line… Which is the easiest way to say “We actually are not authentic, or there are obviously people that question our authenticity, but we are, we swear.

Beer in the City: One of the Troubles with the Boston Beer Scene

Boston is an old beer city.  Check out this dated article from Beer Advocate if you have your doubts. In recent times, Boston has housed the Boston Beer Company and Harpoon Brewing Company, two of the largest and oldest craft breweries in the nation, but outside of those two stalwarts, the city’s brewery scene has struggled for a while.  After 2004, when Tremont Brewing Company … Continue reading Beer in the City: One of the Troubles with the Boston Beer Scene
