Well, they had this beer at Waltham's Watch City Brewing Co. that tasted like... what was it? Rosemary bread? with a hint... of bubblegum? Somebody help me out here. I don't know, it was this weird color, too. And strong!

hellhammer stout! moody street stout! thanks! perfect!

after a couple of those, the bacon cask beer will be difficult to resist.

thanks again. this bubblegum thing, tho, i can't go for that.

Nahant is pretty damned scenic, perfect for conquering.

Here are my pics from my motorcycle trip to Nahant.

Everything closes early because last call is 2am. And by 2am, the Commonwealth means that all feet are across the bar's entrance by.

Hope you enjoyed your stay.

hey not on display, thanks, watch city rocked, in addition to good stout, there was a dash of 'cruel summer' followed by m.i.a.

i would live at that place if i were still up in somerville. it was weirdly empty 'round midnight, tho, i counted just 10 hardy souls. i scared off a jewish woman who sat next to me by talking about the nouveau christian wedding i had attended earlier in the day. although i have loved many jewish women, my atheism and stout consumption are generally a recipe for heartbreak....
