Harpoon Brewing company is another bigger one in the Boston area.

There's a lot up in Vermont - Magic Hat, Otter Creek, some others that I'm forgetting about. If you can make it up to Burlington, VT, do - it's a pheomenal little college town, lots of great stuff going on, lots of great food and drink and good times.

While not a brewery - when you go to pittsburgh, go down to the south side to Fatheads. They keep 25 or so micros/imports on tap, I've even seen Stone Arrogant Bastard on tap there.

Default PA Breweries

While passing through PA, stop at the oldest brewery in the country. Yuengling Brewery in Pottsville, Pa. Then on to Victory in Downingtown, Wyerbacher in Easton, Troegs (I forget where they are)

Completely agree with the suggestion to his Weyerbacher in Easton. Have a designated driver...these guys don't mess around.

The bird makes a great point - Burlington, VT is a hike from Boston (4-5 hours?) but there are some great bars and, of course, Magic Hat.

In Boston, other than Sam Adams and Harpoon (both a must), there aren't a ton of options for large breweries any more. I would suggest trying out the Cambridge Brewing Company, whose web page can be found here. This is a great place to get a few growlers for the hotel! Their Amber is excellent. Their Porter is out of this world. Their food is great. Can't go wrong, this is my most frequented brewery in the area.

Also, though it's not a brew pub, I'd make some time to hit up the Sunset Grill & Tap in Allston (pretty much same city as Boston). They don't have a web page, but here is their writeup on beeradvocate.com. This place has 100 or so beers on tap, dozens more in bottles, and they usually have some Cask Conditioned stuff also. Truly a beer lovers heaven.

Finally, (and again they don't brew their own!) I have to reccomend Redbones BBQ in Somerville (and once again, easily accessible....everything in Boston is close). They have the best BBQ around and have some great beers on tap. This is one of the few places I have hunted down Rogue products on the taps, and coupled with some ribs and pulled pork there ain't much better than that.

I second the Victory recommendation - awesome microbrewery!!
