John Harvard's Brewhouse – Cambridge, Massachusetts | Fifty States of Brew

Along the Charles River across from Boston, historic puritanical colony, Cambridge, could be difficult to navigate with its narrow one-way cobblestone streets, landmark cultural museums, and world-class collegiate institutions. Busy downstairs restaurant JOHN HARVARD’S BREWHOUSE, with its wooden décor, Old Americana portraits, and reasonably priced entrees, has been a provincial staple of this frontier settlement for over a decade as of April ’05 visit. But closed down in 2019.

Boasting beer recipes handed down from literary wit William Shakespeare, brewer Geoff De Bisschop kept servicing brew tanks behind the bar. German-styled sourdough-fizzed blonde ale Colonial Kolsch; friskily Cascade-hopped red-yellow-fruited John Harvard’s Pale Ale; subtly Saaz-hopped red-fruited sweet-grained Old Willie’s IPA; soapy crystal-malted yellow-fruited Bard’s Best Bitter; feathery coffee-espresso-lilted Newtowne Nut Brown; and roasted coffee-themed hazelnut-tamed Irish-styled Black Watch Stout were served.
