Allan Wright and Eric Pepke justifiably recommend a visit to the Commonwealth
Brewery in Boston. The Burton Bitter is a mandatory pint for any beer-loving
visitor to Beantown. Alas, many HBD'ers don't make it East very often.
Luckily, there's a Midwest alternative -- the Bishop's Bitter at the Sherlock's
Home (yeah, yeah, it's a dumb name) brewpub in suburban Minneapolis, MN (in
Minnetonka). It's the best (to my taste, at least) of their four standard
fined and hand-pumped beers (the others are a Scottish Ale, a porter, and a
stout). You'd be hard-pressed to find a more authentic British pint served
in the U.S. And yes, it even has enough hops to satisfy a Portland homebrewer!
Finally, I'd also like to say how much fun it was to match the faces up with
the net addresses at the AHA conference. Hell, even in those cases where
we had actually met before, our network connection added a new element for
lively discussions and great laughs. Hard to believe, but Jack and his Arf
Generic are no longer "Chicago's Own" -- it's about time we shared him with
And for those of you who did NOT mistake me for Jeff Mendel, a hearty thank you.
