Mass. breweries and their top beers
Cambridge Brewing Co.
Top beers: Year-round styles
The Cambridge Brewing Co. was founded by Phil Bannatyne in 1989, making it the oldest brewpub in the Boston area. They've brewed hundreds of beers - including seasonal specials like the Arquebus summer barleywine - but it's the house beers that brewmaster Will Meyers highlighted. Cambridge Amber is their flagship ale. "It's really great with food because it has some nice caramel malt flavors with a little bit of roasted malt in the finish," he said. Other house beers include Tall Tale Pale Ale, Regatta Golden, and Charles River Porter.
