looking for Lowell pubs with good food and good beer lists
Any suggestions for lowell area pubs? An interesting menu, or else a terrific rendition of the standard pub menu (burgers, etc.), is a must, as is a very good beer list. A microbrewery/brewpub would be ideal, but with Concord Brewery gone, I don't think there's anything left like that...?
re: three of us
i spend a few days/nights a week in downtown lowell, and you're not going to find what you're looking for. most of the bars cater to college kids, and good food + sophisticated beer lists isn't what gets them in the doors.
there is a beer works right by lalecheur park (homefield for the spinners). beer is good, food is ok.
village smokehouse has a good selection of draught beer, but the food is pretty lousy.
old court has a good selection of beer on tap too and the food is ok.
although everybody seems to have it on tap, i've yet to get a proper guinness, so there ya go.
