Funny Budweiser story...I grew up in Holland and on a trip to the UK I was excited to see the pub I was at served good old American Budweiser. Well, I just had to order one to be a good American - it was stored in a separate fridge at a much colder temperature and was the worst thing I drank that night. Actually, it wasn't offensive - just more like beer-flavored water.<br><br>
There are pubs all over - some fun places would probably be closer to BC or in Cambridge. There's an Irish pub (Americanized-Irish) on Boylston right near where they build the grandstand (right hand side of the road as the runners approach the finish line, same side as the convention center). Of course there's the Bull & Finch near Boston Commons (the Cheers bar).
