Despite it being a relatively clear and very sunny day, it was a bit chilly when we arrived in Boston. We were happy to arrive around 11:10am, but to our surprise the Lower Depths actually hadn't opened yet. This meant we had to stand in the chilly Boston air for a bit. Fortunately though, we ran into a few people we know - Rebecca from MA Girls Pint Out, Jeff from DrinkCraftBeer.com, and Adam Greiner from Chatham Bars Inn.
We were about 15 people deep in line, but once the doors opened we made our way to the bar. It was a pretty amazing sight though, because with the turn of the locks and a couple of minutes, the Lower Depths was completely full. Pulls from the cask were under way, and mugs of the commemorative Notch Session / Drink Craft Beer mugs were filling up with tasty Milk Session Stout!
The keg was quickly kicked, completely running empty in approximately 85 minutes after the doors opened. Fortunately though, there are several other casks of this beer in and around the Boston area. You can view the draft accounts on the Notch Brewing website in an effort to catch this beer before it's gone!
