This is my second visit to Boston: both visits have been in February, where both times I stayed within walking distance of a Boston Beer Works, and my first nights on both trips including a stout seasonal. Even better, they have been different locations of this stream-lined brewery.
Jonah and I made it to Boston, even though the 2011 Winter Storm tried to prevent us. I've always imagined New England snow covered so it's such a treat to see it that way. After we found our way to the Boston Garden area, Boston Beer Works was our number one destination of the evening. We walked in the snow to find a valentine themed brewery. BBW changes their theme every month and February's is, of course CHOCOLATE! Chocolate beer, chocolate sprinkled food and stouts, all their February beers were stouts. I had a Curley's Irish Stout (Boston = Irish, made sense to me), which was dry, very very dry. Jonah won the 'beer choice of the night' award with the Black Rider, a terrific black lager.
I need to go back a take a picture of the brewery covered in snow, the only pictures I could find online were sun-filled with people enjoying the outside the porch. Not this weekend! Brrrrrrrrrr!
BOOM!!! There it is!
On a side note: Happy BIRTHday to Lucas Kinan Getty-Sasaki! I can't wait to buy you a beer in 21 years!
