A guide to local brewpubs

Emerson once wrote that "the poet speaks, not by intellect alone, but by intellect inspired by nectar." It's a good bet that he sometimes turned to the brew readily available in Concord's local pubs. Happily, inspiration in the form of good beer is right around the corner from most of the Boston area's institutions of deep thought and higher learning. So as all you newly arrived grad students, postdocs, and assistant professors search for the mot juste or the explanation for that elusive subatomic particle, remember that the best place to look may be in your local brewpub or beer bar.
