“Before Samuel Adams, American Beer was made fun of by Europeans as "It's fucking close to water". Come see how Samuel Adams changed that around and went on to win first place as the “Best Beer in America” at the Great American Beer Festival after being in business for only three months!”

“A Boston/JP institution, this is the typical Irish American bar. Lots of memorabilia from all the pols who have visited this place. Try the pizza, the buffalo wings, and hamburgers. Many vouch for the Lobsta roll and the Irish nachos (made with potato chips!)”
