I more or less agree with the Boston Globe’s Steve Greenlee about the best new beers in Boston. However, I don’t understand how he can have this list and not have a beer from Night Shift Brewing, specifically its Trifecta or Bee Tea brews. Regardless, there’s never been a better time for craft beer in Boston. The brewery talent is just astounding and rivals any place in the country.
So, what are Greenlee’s best brews? Backlash Declaration, Mystic Saison, Idle Hands Triplication (also one of my favorites), Jack’s Abby Hoponius Union, Clown Shoes Vampire Slayer, Mayflower Spring Hop, Cambridge Brewing Co. Bannatyne’s Scotch Ale, and Pretty Things Jack D’Or, which is cheating because it’s been around since 2008.
