Farmer’s Market Tavern

A nice quiet and underrated spot to have beer is the classic Farmer’s Market on Fairfax Avenue. Bar 326 and E.B.’s Beer & Wine pour a good mix of beers so you can go touristy and show off some local beers.

Beer will get a British twist as a new British pub will open next year by the name of Market Tavern. Premier League on the TV and a curated beer list which hopefully will have a cask engine and some ESB ready.

Take your Craft Beer to Market

I have always thought that (especially in Los Angeles) an adult Farmer’s Market in the early evening would be a hit. Have the usual vendors of greens and satsuma’s but throw in a local winery or brewery. Now it looks like Massachusetts is looking into doing it.

This snippet that I found on the interwebs has me hopeful, “The next legislative session hasn’t started yet, but one local official is already brewing a proposal that could help bolster the Bay State’s craft beer industry. State Sen. James Eldridge, D-Acton, plans on filing legislation next year at the State House, that if passed, would allow local beer makers to sell their products at Farmers Markets and agricultural events in Massachusetts.”
