Drinking Boston

A History of the City and Its Spirits

Schorow, Stephanie

(Unknown - 2012)
Drinking Boston
Print
From the Dark Ambiance and camaraderie of the Colonial taverns to the great saloon era of the turn of the century; from Prohibition-a period rife with social reform, class politics, and opportunism-to a trail of nightclub neon so bright, it was called the "Conga Belt," Drinking Boston pays tribute to the fascinating role alcohol has played throughout the city's history. Teasing out the curious relationship the city has with alcohol-in particular, the push and pull between a constrained Puritan morality (which still lingers like a hangover today) and a raucous revolutionary spirit of personal expression-Drinking Boston introduces readers to the cast of characters who championed or vilified drinking and the places where they imbibed-legally and otherwise. Bringing us to present day, this pub crawl visits some of Boston's most beloved and enduring neighborhood barrooms, ending with an examination of the city's very own recipe for the current cocktail renaissance sweeping the nation-the innovators, the hotspots, and the uncompromising dedication to craft.
