Tonight was the first planning meeting of the Happy Hour Gang. But due to illness, work, and new jobs I was the only one to show up.
This amazing little bar is hidden behind smoky glass and a steel door and if you blink you may miss it. Tonight’s crowd was small, as it is a Monday night, but everyone is pretty friendly and ready to share a story or two.
Davey the bartender from Ohio, by way of England and is eager to share information about the Brew of the Month. (Trust me, you’ll want to listen, his accent is dreamy, but don’t ask him where he’s from. But do ask him about Absinthe, he’s a true aficionado on the drink. Plus his accent! )
This month’s brew is Kronenbourg 1664 Blanc. It’s wonderfully light and refreshingly orangey. The last bit of the beer changes flavor with the yeast that settles at the bottom. I highly recommend it when you stop in!
The bar itself is dark and cozy, with wonderful couches and is lit by red votives. It’s truly a locals bar, but some visitors will find it while waiting for a table at a restaurant. Such as the guy from Montana who lives in a town that has more Irish residents than Boston. I said people like to share stories!
Stop by, their happy hour is 4 to 8 pm.
