LAST CALL WITH BAR HAVOC

Last call means 15 minutes. If you order seven Jagerbombs and 15 beers and learn you can’t consume all that in 15 minutes, that’s your problem. It doesn’t mean you stay past 2am. Continue reading

Sure, summers are crazy here, but there is nothing like the last week of August and the first few weeks of September. With their fake ID’s in hand and a glint in their eye, these children will do anything to get past the bouncers to consume as many Jager-bombs as possible. Continue reading

“New England has just about the oldest beer culture in the United States,” says Clark, who as a homebrewer appreciates that New Englanders were instrumental in legalizing homebrewing, and defining modern beer styles we still see today. Continue reading
