Give Me Li-Beer-ty and More in Boston
Following in the footsteps of our founding fathers we set out to experience the establishments these great leaders once frequented. Boston is a well known beer town and after reading a couple of articles on the subject we set out for a day of beer, seafood and more.
1. Stumble Upon History
This cemetery is the final resting place for some of the first leaders of the US. Subway construction forced us above ground and we happened upon this very fitting site to start the day.
2. Taste The Inspiration
The Sam Adams Brewery tour in Boston is a great stop to learn more about the largest craft brewer in the country. You can take the Orange line out to the brewery.
3. Learn A Thing Or Two
The brewery is an R&D site for Sam Adams and was one of the more informative tours I have experienced, plus it's free!
4. Drink In Hand
The oldest continuously operating tavern in America, stop by the Bell in Hand for a tasty selection of drafts (1). Take the Orange line from Sam Adams back into town.
5. Paul Revere & The Sons Of Libeerty
@ Green Dragon Tavern, dates back to 1654 and is where Paul Revere and the Sons of Liberty met here to discuss many important things (1).
6. Clams Casino
@ Union Oyster House, the oldest continuously operating restaurant in the US (1).
7. Oysters And Cioppino
@ Neptune Oyster. The seafood at this restaurant was unbelievable. The oyster selection is vast with many local options and the cioppino was amazing.
8. Top It All Off
A short $5 cab ride away in Charlestown is our last stop, @ Warren Tavern, the oldest tavern in it's original location within MA (esablished 1780) (1).
