Tremont India Pale Ale

Used to be this hophead’s delight was available only on the occasional tap at, say, F.J.Doyle’s in Jamaica Plan. As of April, though, the good people at the Tremont Brewery, way over in Charlestown, started running product through their million-dollar bottling line. The ale is alty, extremely well-hopped and just the right shade of light copper. By now, it should be flying off the shelves at your neighborhood’s finest packy.
