Mark Levy at Cambridge Day noticed that three of the winners in a Boston Magazine "Best New England Craft Beers" article are based in Cambridge and Somerville, so he called them up to talk about local brewing:
There seems to be a lot of Cambridge and Somerville in the package. Is there a reason?
It's really difficult in terms of red tape to rent space to brew in Boston. I don't know if Slumbrew is in a cooperative workspace, but I know Pretty Things is, and that's kind of indicative of an attitude in Cambridge and Somerville that helps these grassroots companies thrive.
