LOrd Hobo in Somerville is by farm the best beer/food bar in or near Boston in my opinion. Bukowskis has two locations one near the Pru and one in Cambrige, this is my second favorite beer/food bar in Boston. As far as Burlington goes I would skip Vt pub other than being Noonan's place there is nothing special about it. The Farmhouse Tap and grill is solid but a little pricey. I would recommend Hitting Three Pennys in Montpelier on the way by, this place is my favorite Vt bar. Also if you do stop in Waterbury and are looking for a real nice place check out Hen of the Wood (again a little pricey) it is similar in food style to Armsby Abbey but not quite as solid beer menu. Also near Pro Pig is the Reservoir and Blackback pub, both have solid beer menus as well. IMHO I would skip Burlington and stay in the Waterbury/ Montpilier area I thought the scene was much better, my wife thought differently.
