I will be in Boston in late July and I was hoping for some advice on beer and non-beer related places to check out. Will be there to see Liverpool vs Roma at Fenway and I believe I am staying in a hotel fairly close to Fenway Park. Thanks

We had a nice vacation in Boston three years ago. A day trip out to Lexington is worth it, as is the John Adams farm. All the colonial sites were great, for us, you can do a walking tour and see many of them.

Sam Adams tour was fun. A day trip to Cape Cod was very pleasant.

Have a great trip!

I'm going to that game, too.

Do the Freedom Trail thing. Touristy, but a must. Honestly, just walking around Boston you're bound to run into plenty of things.

If you are staying near Fenway I would suggest going to Penguin Pizza in Brigham circle. They have over 20 beers on tap and a huge selection of bottles.plus their pizza is awesome a well.

I'm going as well. I used to live in Boston for 5 years for school. Agree w/ shecky, just walking around the Freedom trail/ Faneuil Hall, Newbury St, maybe go on a Boston Harbor cruise? Those are always fun. Walk the Charles River. Boston now has bike rentals on some streets, so you can pick one up, and drop if off when you're done (even at a differnt street location) and just pay with cc I think. So you can see more with those, if you feel like covering more ground and sweating more

Sunset Grill & Tap in Allston is a short T ride from Fenway, has good food and a bunch of beer on tap, or Boston Beer Works at the top of Lansdowne and Brookline (Fenway is across the st.), but that could be packed. Sam Adams in JP (Jamaica Plain). There's another few places in Cambridge, not sure where though.

I'd definitely make your way into Kendall square in Cambridge (Lord Hobo's, Meadhall, and Cambridge Brewing Company) for beer. Publick House in Brookline or Deep Ellum in Allston are also good stops among others. depending on how late in july, you could catch the hophead throwdown at Publick House

Definitely hit Sunset, Lord Hobo, and/or Publick House! Also, Green Street Grill in Central Square has fantastic food and a good beer menu.

This.

I've been sitting here for a few minutes trying to come up with the best "all-American, roots of the nation" comment to make. I'll just ditto shecky: it's a must.

As a resident, I would remiss if I didn't mention a tour through Harpoon and Sam Adams breweries. If your by Fenway, go to Boston Beer Works. Other than that, I agree with the others, Sunset, Lord Hobo are great places. If you want the oldest bars in America, they are right along the freedoms trail ( green dragon, bell in hand, oyster house).

Go to newbury st., hit the North End for some Italian, go to the Harbor for Legal Seafoods... Amazing and right next to Harpoon. enjoy the greatest city on the East Coast
