Not skipping a beat in the craft brewing trend that's swept over the country, Massachusetts has supplied its fair share of inventive, quirky, and downright delicious pints of beer.\nThere are over 120 breweries in Massachusetts (who each offer a variety of options), which makes choosing the perfect beer to satiate your palette a difficult one, to say the least...#FirstWorldProblems.\nSo to help make the decision process a little easier, I've put together a list of the absolute, no ifs-ands-or-buts-about-it, best-of-the-best Massachusetts beers that you basically HAVE to try before you die. To miss out on these would be a travesty to your taste buds.\nvia @treehousebrewco\nGood Morning // Tree House Brewing Company\nImperial Coffee Stout / 8.40% ABV\nNo, it's not a glass of black tar - although it definitely looks like it, Good Morning is brewed with Grade A Dark Amber Maple Syrup...good morning indeed!\nvia @samueladamsbeer\nUtopias // Sam Adams\nAmerican Strong Ale / 28.00% ABV\nUmmmmm...it's 28% ABV. Talk about one and done. The only downside to this barrel-aged brew? It's price tag. At $200, this should probably reserved for special occasions, but totally worth it if you have the extra cash (also makes for a great gift).\nvia @mgiroux77m\nBreakfast Exorcism // Clown Shoes\nAmerican Imperial Stout / 11.00% ABV\nI don't think there could be a more suitable name for a beer brewed in Salem. Aged in rye barrels and mixed with Espresso from the Barrington Coffee Roasting Company, this Massachusetts beer will wake you right up.\nvia @solodome\nKiwi Rising // Jack's Abby\nDouble India Pale Lager / 8.5% ABV\nThis award winning beer is a force to be reckoned with. Although not an IPA, this beer is pleasantly hoppy with a nice tropical, citrusy twist. And just to confuse you - no kiwis were used in the production of this beer.\nvia @nightshiftbeer\nEl Lechedor // Night Shift Brewing\nMilk Stout / 8.70% ABV\nBig, bold, and black. This silky smooth brew is perfect for a cold winter night..but then again, the horchata style makes it ideal for a weekend summer brunch. Or maybe I just really like this beer and could drink it for breakfast lunch and dinner?\nvia @ipswichalebrew\nIpswich Oatmeal Stout // Ipswich Ale Brewery\nOatmeal Stout / 8.50% ABV\nWho needs dessert when you've got beer?\nvia @kaelinelise\nČerné Pivo // Notch Brewery\nBlack lager / 4.00% ABV\nFor those who like a dark, malty beer without the extreme alcohol content - this is your new go-to. A perfect cold weather session lager, this tasty brew will warm you right up.\nvia @cambrewingco\nBlunderbuss Barleywine // Cambridge Brewing Company\nAmerican Barleywine / 11.50% ABV\nDesigned to be sipped and savored (like a fine brandy), this high alcohol content beer is incredibly complex making it ideal for all you beer connoisseurs.\nvia @wormtownbrewery\nBe Hoppy // Wormtown Brewery\nAmerican IPA / 6.50% ABV\nWith one sip you'll quickly assume you're drinking a west coast IPA, but don't be fooled, this baby is born and bred in Worcester, MA. Don't worry, be hoppy.\nvia @mysticbrewery\nDay of Doom // Mystic Brewery\nBelgian-style quad / 11% ABV\nA hearty drink with a ton of dark fruit flavor. If this is what doom's day is like, bring it on.\nvia @sacredbrews\nPow Pow // Trillium\nDouble IPA / 7.70% ABV\nAfter experimenting with lupulin powder (a super concentrated hop product made by flash freezing and then shattering intact hop flowers), Pow Pow is the result.\nvia @cibrewing\nSweet Brown // Castle Island Brewing Co.\nBrown Ale / 6.50% ABV\nHave you ever tried a beer brewed from sweet potatoes? Didn't think so - try this beer.\nvia @bobby.earle.obrien\nTriplication // Idle Hands Craft Ales\nAbbey-Style Tripel / 9.00%\nA peppery spice balanced with fruity notes, particularly banana. Light, yet complex, making it ideal for those who love Belgian Tripels.\nvia @prettythingsbeer\nBarbapapa // Pretty Things\nImperial Russian Stout / 12.00%\nSadly, Pretty Things is out of commission (at the moment), but their beers still roam the country. And if you can get your hands on one...particularly Our Finest Regards, then do so.
