    Going to be in Boston this weekend with my GF. Looking for less obvious, cool, local things to do/see/drink.

    The only place I'm going to, so far, is Harpoon, and this Italian festival. I know the BBC is around there, and Jacks Abbey is in Framingham. I'm looking for more under the radar breweries/bars/ and bottle shops in the area. Preferably things that are closer together.

    Also looking for any suggestions in the realms of food and stuff to do...

    Trillium Brewing - their Fort Point Pale is excellent and their farmhouse ale gets great marks. Also check out the Boston Food Trucks schedule - if you come across Roxy's Grilled Cheese truck you will walk away a happy feller.

    OP, you can't sample at Trillium, but their pale ale is great.

    Not sure I'd call then "under the radar" - BUT Mystic Brewery, Night Shift Brewing, and Idle Hands Craft Ales are all within 1.5miles of each other (Night Shift & Idle Hands are side-by-side, and don't miss a Mystic tasting).

    All would be just be a short 5-10min drive from wherever you are in Boston that day.

    BBC is about 2+ hours from Boston in Deerfield Ma.

    I recommend this place

    OP most likely means Boston Beer Co., aka Sam Adams.

    Yeah that is what you get when working too many hours and posting. C
