Beer gardens face a stealth attack on Beacon Hill

Trillium Beer Garden on the Greenway It’s February — not a time when most folks are obsessing about beer gardens . Except, of course, for a couple of Massachusetts lawmakers still intent on micromanaging liquor licenses on the local level. When the beer garden season ended last fall, the phenomenon had reached new heights, with the open-air taps catering to crowds on the Greenway, the Esplanade, the Seaport District, and SoWa, and popping up in neighborhoods throughout Boston.

At least from May through October, when this is an amazing place to visit. And it’s easy to forget that tourism is big business, an engine of our economy that accounts for about 7 percent of total output alongside health care, education, tech, and financial services. It’s an appropriate time to look at the business because there was an important transition last week at the Greater […]
