Craft Beer's Secret Gems
Posted on 10/7/2012 by Chops
At I write this post, I am sitting in a Boston hotel room replaying the events of the day. I just returned from a visit to the Cambridge Brewing Company, a brewery-restaurant situated in the heart of Cambridge, MA. It's a hidden gem of the Boston area brewing scene. To be perfectly honest, I had never even heard of the place until I was in the area searching for beer related destinations. It ended up being a wonderful experience and I definitely plan to revisit the establishment on any return trips to Boston.

This got me to thinking about Bull City Burger and Brewery in Durham, NC where I currently live. I imagine that many travelers have had the exact same experience that I just had, only with BCBB. After all, you can only get delicious BCBB brews at a handful of local establishments and few people outside of the area know about it. But once you experience a regional gem for yourself, then location becomes irrelevant. You will always remember that place and your will always revisit it when given the opportunity.

That's when the idea for this Chief Chat post hit me. I would like to start a conversation thread about the secret gems of the craft beer world. What hidden craft brew gold mines have you uncovered in your travels?

And just to clarify, this post is meant to highlight isolated breweries with high quality beers. If a brewery has any sort of distribution, it doesn't really qualify. Nor am I looking for breweries with relatively good beers. I'm on the hunt for diamonds in the rough, not shiny pebbles. Nothing against shiny pebbles of course, they "rock" too. (rimshot)
