...and a pint of guinness

no doubt this will get moved to the beer board by big brother, but it dosent help me to know where i can get a correctly drawn pint of guinness in the BOSTON area. i have had some horrific imitations from places who havent changed their lines since the reagan administration (and at the same temperature as the lagers ). plenty of irish expats, seems like a no-brainer, but if you are a fan you will be surprised. irish freinds say the best in the area is on the cape, somewhere called "the irish cottage" possibly, but too far. is it me?

              Please excuse the bump MC, but I would add to your already excellent list:

              Mr. Dooley's, Boston Financial District
              Matt Murphy's, Brookline Village


            2. The Greenbriar in Brighton for sure

              1. Where to find great food and drink locally is very much on topic for this board, so no worries! The beer board is geared towards discussion of beer in general, and non-locally oriented beer discussions.
