March 8, 2012 - A Great Day For Beer - Cambridge, Massachusetts

After 16,000 plus rotations on this rock, the days can start blurring together. Work, sleep, work can become the drone of the day to day. It's nice to break out of the rut every once in a while, just to remind yourself that you can. March 8th was a rut-breaking reminder of why I drone on and on.

The occasion was my beautiful wife's birthday (her 42nd, nearly older than Elvis - tick, tock). The location was Cambridge, MA. The reason was to see one of our favorite bands at the Lizard Lounge.

Session Americana is a fabulous, folk-rock, roots supergroup. SA is made up of members of other Boston-area bands who started coming together on Sunday nights to jam for fun. Out of those pure-joy sessions came Session. True to the irish tradition, the band plays around a pint-cluttered pub table and the resulting fun comes through loud and clear. If you like beer, music and life lived large - check them out:

Oh, and their signature song is called Beertown. Pretty good match for us and believe it or not, they were the second best thing about the day.

By mid-day we had arrived in Cambridge and had some time to kill before the 8:30pm show. The car: parked. The hotel: walking distance. The destination: Cambridge Commons. Cambridge Commons has a great selection of beers (31) on tap. We were out of town, off the leash and we had hours to kill - all the ingredients for an afternoon lost in foam (insert schoolgirl giggle here).

I started off with the daily cask offering, Haverhill Leatherlips IPA. After that, I moved on to Opa Opa Brewings Opa Opa IPA - delicious. Next up was Smuttynose's Finest Kind IPA - a great example of the style. After that I needed a palate cleanser and went with an Alagash White - very nice. Next swing, because I can never say no to one, a Green Flash IPA - pure heaven. From there it was on to Lagunita's WTF - an exceptional beer. Finally, since I was in New England and had miles to go before I'd sleep, I downshifted to my down shore favorite - Naragansette. Hi Neighbor!

Then I shopped for Vinyl. Then I went to a great show with a greater lady. Then I thanked my lucky stars and hoped for 16,000 more round and rounds.
