Do you work there? Are you working Sunday?
Yeah, I do. I will be there Sunday. Going back?
We are thinking about it, if I do I'll bring those cans
Let me know if you do. I'll dig up something for ya
Missed this, but for any future readers: I like to bring in food to Night Shift, although they often have food trucks. Rincon (Mexican) in Somerville is one of my goto's.
ABSTRACTlegend Where you going to be today?
Headed up to Vermont for hill farmstead, be back tonight tho. Going to hit up a few of those bars you recommended.
+1 on this. No disrespect to the amazing food trucks at NS, but I've brought many a home-made or takeout dinner or cheese plate to Night Shift. Idle Hands' taproom welcomes BYO food too.
I finally tried to Ciao! pizza at Mystic's taproom. This could be the best pizza in Boston. Order at Mystic's bar with a credit card and it shows up in 15 min - gratuity included.
My Father-in-law-to-be kept raving about this pizza he had. But he pronounced it "See-oww" in a heavy Boston accent and we didn't figure out he was talking about Ciao for like a week.
Cambridge Brewing has both Cerise Cassee and Blunderbuss BW on, recommended.
Love that beer so much.
CBC Barleywine Festival coming up on Jan 28. I always end up under the table at that one.
I drank all 14 one year about half full size, was worth it.
Never been to the BW fest at CBC before. Always heard it was way chiller than the other fests. I'll have to make it to this one
Usually it is, they also sell all the BWs in both full pours and half pours. You can get 3 half pours at a time.
Checked out Dorchester and Lamplighter for the first time yesterday. Astral Weeks was really a phenom beer from Lamplighter and the atmosphere was comfortable. Wasn't overly impressed by anything at Dorchester but it was the last stop and they were closing so I kind of rushed through their selection. (And I was drunk)
Got dinner beforehand at Jacks Abby to try all the new Springdale beers, too. Most of them were solid, none blew me away but all very drinkable. Always exciting to see more hoppy tallboys coming out of there. My favorite of the day there was the Noon Hill blend, I think it's the house lager blended with a dunkle. Need to crush from an oversized Oktoberfest mug.
My brother in law lives in Boston and asked me if I knew then best beer fest that happens in Boston. Is it truly the Alstroms extreme beer fest or something else? I want to try to aim him in the right direction.
I'm not a fan of them either but I have to admit EBF is pretty well run (at least last time I went in 2015). I went 4 times and always had a good experience and lots of great beer. I heard that Copenhagen Beer Celebration last year was even better but I'm not sure if it's a one-time thing or not.
That's what I figured, but I figured I would ask first.
They made a post on facebook a few weeks ago with the comment "See you next year"? so it looks like it's hopefully coming back here.
