    We can dream. The main problem with this idea is that, outside of dedicated Oxbow and Allagash lines, which would have to rotate through their respective offerings, there isn't a consistent supply of beer from any of the other breweries. I was just told that the load of Fantome Hiver kegs from our distributor "exploded on the truck," which is gonna put a hurt on that set Fantome line. :rofl:

    Sea Hag on tap at Lord Hobo bar tonight. $8/pint. Haven’t seen any NEBCO in Boston for a long time. Lots of other great draft options along w 3F and Resurgam bottles left over from their 10th anniversary but be prepared to shell out some $$$

    Putting aside the specific breweries, Row 34, and to some extent CBC, tend to have the same diversity and quality of draft options, plus both usually have a option on cask.

    Dive bar that tries its best to be a dive bar with charm.

    keno. That golf arcade game. Popcorn. Pierogies. Decent juke box. Corn dogs.
    Decent spot for a pint or two

    they had a SN Celebration day on Sunday which was essentially just the owner and his mates show up to drink a keg.

    but they do find the odd tasty beer to put on the 6 taps they have. Nice compliment to everything else in this awesome wee town.

    J. Wakefield Big Poppa still on draft at The Port Tavern in Newburyport. $15 for a 10 oz. pour. Worth it IMO.

    Amongst Friends (Barrel-aged Saison with cherries) - Sante Adairius at The Tip Tap Room. $12/5oz.

    Looks like the keg of Morning Delight at Beat Brew Hall finally kicked.

    Holy crap, $12 for 5 oz.?!

    I had Mornin' Delight at Hugh O'Neil's a couple months ago. Was pretty easy to get, people weren't rushing there to get it. Sounds like we're seeing more frequent drops of this.

    Went to Hugh O'Neill's this past weekend.

    They had Mon Cheri, BCBS '13, '15, and '18 on tap, plus 2019 in bottles. Among other awesome stouts.

    Also, they had Tilted Barn's The Other One on tap. Nice to see this is making it into the wild at more than just Banners.

    They also do flights, which makes all of the above a bit more manageable.

    The 2013 BCBS was awesome by the way.
