After four days in Boston, one screamingly obvious thing is that Harpoon IPA is the normal craft beer in town. Fenway. The Four's. Union Oyster House. A Cheesecake Factory. My relatives' fridge. Citizen Public House. It is everywhere. Every town should have a normal good beer but not all do. Allagash White is pretty pervasive in Portland, Maine where we head next. Not sure Albany has one yet. Ithaca sure likes its Cascazilla.
I was a bit surprised it isn't Sam Adams lager here in Boston. But that more of a beer from around here than a beer from here. Normal beer has to be from here. Wherever that is.
