Samuel Adams's "Boston Lager," their signature, bestselling brew, was first in the round of three tastes tests included on the brewery tour.
The Samuel Adams "Boston Lager" was first put on tap at Doyle's Cafe located in Jamaica Plain.
Wondering why there's no scrutiny this week? The FM staff instead delved into the wide world of beer. From beer in the 17th century to craft beer startups, this issue's got it all.
1637: John Harvard moves from England to Massachusetts Bay Colony. He dies later that year, leaving money to New College, which is later renamed for its greatest benefactor. Harvard develops plans to build a brewery on its campus. Legend has it that Harvard learned the art of beer brewing from family friend William Shakespeare. One could say that the College’s on-campus brewery used recipes directly from the “First Folio.”
Divest Harvard’s recent escalation is the outgrowth of a sense of frustration at a University president and Corporation, that to them, are too secretive, too dismissive, and too unresponsive to their fervent calls.
Students assemble outside Massachusetts Hall to call for Harvard to divest from investments in fossil fuels in April 2013.
Other higher education institutions, notably Stanford, are finding their stakes in fossil fuels increasingly unconscionable, but Harvard itself has made no intentions to divest. Still, the protests continue.
