Cambridge Beer Guide | March

One of our favorite ways to get to know our unique city is through our beer.  Luckily for us and those visiting Cambridge, we have tons of great local breweries.

Since St. Patrick’s Day is next weekend, we thought it was only appropriate to highlight our Cambridge Beer Guide this weekend.  Whether you’re looking for a self-proclaimed “funky” beer, something light and fruity, or a Double IPA you’re bound to find something that fits your fancy at one of our many Cambridge breweries.
