Boston Lobster drinking an IPA

Boston Beercation

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you already know that Matt and I visited Boston this past Spring. And, full disclosure, I procrastinated big time on writing a post about it. (Obviously – here we are at the end of August.) I took some sadly scant notes, and that’s what I had to work from.

Therefore, I’ve now decided to tell the tale of our trip to Boston in a small series of somewhat cryptic haikus. If the following words make no sense, I am (a little) sorry.

Day One:
Flew in over town.
“I want some fresh seafood, stat.”
There’s Boston Harbor!

College roomie hug!
Grabbed my bags and off we went.
Fried shrimp for dinner.

Day Two:
Went to buy bottles
From Trillium, but first we
Lunched: fried fish and chips.

Beer O’clock again.
Toured Harpoon, pronounced “Hahpoon.”
Lobstah rolls for din.

Day Three:
Took the Duck Boat tour,
A bus-turned-boat while
Hist’ry lessons learned.

Walked the Freedom Trail
and we toured Paul Revere’s home.
Snacked on cannolis.

Day Four:
Jenga at Slumbrew,
Then, an Uber to Night Shift.
Drank all of their beer,

Packed like sardines we
Played bags and old school arcades.
Cab back to Southie.

Day Five:
I took a long nap.
Had one last Harpoon
On draft and said bye.

OK fine, to give you a little context in prose, I went to Boston for 5 days to visit my college roomie and her hubs. Matt joined us for Days 3-4, and we drank a wide variety of East Coast beers, visited four breweries, and took some historical tours to give our poor livers a small break. Here’s a little map infographic I created of the four breweries we visited in the Boston area:

No, I didn’t drink any Treehouse. Yes, I drank a lot of Trillium beer – in fact, I brought a bunch of those bottles home to share with our friends at ABV Chicago. You can listen to us drink and talk about them on Episode 116, Trillium Again right here.

I hope you enjoyed this very brief recap of our Boston excursion! In closing, here is an illustration I made of a lobster … er lobstah … drinking a New England style IPA:
