Hops – Beer’s Misunderstood Flavor Flower

For the majority of people, hops seem to be something they have all heard of, but something they have never really thought about.

If You Pour It, They Will Come

As the old adage goes, "If you want to be good, you need to fit in. If you want to be different, you better be great." Tom Powers, the owner of Union Brewhouse in Weymouth, MA, set out to take the road less traveled and in a sea of fizzy yellow macro lager, decided to shed the chains of normality and open a "no crap on tap" craft beer-focused bar in the South Shore of Massachusetts.
