Framingham's Award-Winning Brewery

Many of you from The Ham and nearby have probably drained a pint or two at John Harvard's Brewhouse at Shopper's World, and enjoyed both the beer and the food there. But did you know that the brewpub has the bragging rights of winning medals at a recent international beer competition?

Head brewer Maria Poulinas took home a gold medal at the World Beer Championship for her Mobay Stout, a Jamaican-style stout brewed with pure Jamaican cane sugar. She also brought back a bronze medal for another stout she created, Atomic Espresso Stout, a coffee stout brewed with espresso beans roasted for the brewpub by the Atomic Cafe` in Wakefield.

Congratulations John Harvard's, and Maria specifically! Save some for me.
