Best Compromise Between Going Out for a Beer and Staying in to Read a Book

Novel Brewing Company

It’s Saturday night. Your friends are texting you to come out with them, but you’re in too deep with Thomas Pynchon’s The Crying of Lot 49. Picture this: You can have it all. Craft beers, a social setting, and you don’t even have to put down your book. Novel Brewing Company brews and serves its own book-themed beer, from the “Go Dog Go!” (a New England-style IPA) to the “Bookend” (an American Brown Ale). The tasting room is dog-friendly, kid-friendly, and books line the shelves for reading while you drink. For the full experience, stop by on a night with a food truck, and order a book flight: four beers to taste of your choosing, served in a carved-out book.
