Welcome to New England!

We recently moved from New Orleans to New England. And so now I am drinking my way through the various regional brews. There are so many new ones I’d never even heard of….isn’t that great?

Here are just a few I’ve had. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!

These include the following breweries:

Wachusett Brewing

Cambridge Brewing

Berkshire Brewing

Lefty’s

Smuttynose

Cape Ann Brewing

Shipyard

Offshore Ale Co.

Somerville Brewing

High and Mighty

Pretty Things Beer and Ale Project

Thomas Hooker Brewing 

Opa-Opa Brewery

The People’s Pint Brewery

Nectar Ales (Firestone Brewing)

 

 

 

(that watermelon ale was pretty disgusting I must admit)

 

 

And there you have it….my first exploration of beers of New England. Feel free to suggest some more!!

I did notice something a bit strange about the beers up here in general. They are often mislabeled. Or perhaps it’s just not what I’m used to drinking. A Kolsch is not a Kolsch. A wheat is not really a wheat. A nut brown ale is more like a stout or a porter, and a Belgian is not quite as Belgian as I’d like it to be. Have you noticed that too?

Cheers!
