Cheers

Framingham

Drinking beer supports fitness? Well, sorta. John Harvard’s Brew House created a “Rail Trail Ale,” to help benefit development of the Cochituate Rail Trail.

You can try its “balance of malt sweetness” and “slight hoppy finish” for the first time tonight at the restaurant, located in Shopper’s World, starting at 6:30 p.m.

Part of the profits from beers sold will go toward the trail’s development, according to a press release.

The Cochituate Rail Trail -- envisioned as a mecca for cyclists, walkers, joggers, rollerbladers and cross-country skiers -- is planned to extend four miles from the village of Saxonville in Framingham to Natick Center.
