Bar Hop Like Paul Revere in Boston

American cities on the Eastern seaboard like to reminisce and tout their historical importance in the process of establishing of America—even when it come to drinking. This week, Thrillist takes stock of the founding bars of the Boston . It seems nearly all the city’s taverns founded in the 18th century share a similar claim to fame: All were frequented by the pub-crawling Paul Revere. If sitting at Green Dragon Tavern imagining the founding fathers plotting the Boston Tea Party isn’t your cup of tea, the bars left over from the 19th century are notable for their weird Boston-centric artifacts and pretty hand-carved features. But be warned: just because these bars came first doesn’t necessarily mean they’re the best. [Thrillist] [Photo: Flickr/Boston Public Library]
