One of the local brewpubs is relatively new, but their bar is over 140 years old. Came out of a Portland hotel. I'm amazed most of those places made it through Prohibition.

Yeah, I'm not sure that's entirely accurate. I've been to McSorely's, it's really cool.

No mention of the Green Dragon in Boston. According to lore, this is where the Boston Tea Party was planned.

I haven't even been to most of the cities on the list, but I have had a few beers at number 1. The place in New Orleans definitely looks real old when you are in it.

If you dare text message me from the White Horse Tavern with a picture of what you're drinking, you had better be stopping on your way home for a couple sixers for me.
