On tap for 2011

By JOSH SMITH  |  December 29, 2010

So who is going to get squeezed out? Sadly, I think it is going to be some of our longtime favorite breweries. Look no further than nearby Westport, Massachusetts, and the decline of Buzzards Bay Brewing. The brewer did fine for years when they were the only show in town. But increased (and superior) competition in the past few years made Buzzards Bay the odd man out.

We've had much to be thankful for in 2010 and even more new beers to look forward to in 2011. Just don't forget to support your local favorites while you are at it!
