...besides Stoddards and Beer Works? A friend just returned from jolly ol' Angland, and I presume she'll need a fix. Bonus points for the CambLingVille side of the river.
ObOpinion: Although I'm still pissed about Beer Works' menu redesign ten or so years ago, I've enjoyed some of their beers, particularly the Allston Mild (no longer available, afaik) and same-on-cask.
In Cambridge, Lord Hobo always has a cask on, and in fact they're having a special NERAX (New England Real Al Exhibition) event this weekend, with 3 special UK casks (http://twitter.com/lordhobo). I believe that Redbones also always has a cask on. Cambridge Brewing Co puts a cask on every Tuesday, I think, and it usually lasts for a few days.

I believe Cambridge Common always has a cask ale as well.

Add Deep Ellum Bar to your list.
And if you do the Twitter thing, follow @NERAX. They have the up to the minute listing.

Jacob Wirth had a daily/weekly? cask ale - definitely a good way to go if you are headed there.
