On a cold Saturday night in mid-February in Boston, what better place to stop and rest than Jerry Remy’s Sports Bar & Grill and what could be better way to look ahead to the forthcoming baseball season than a Remy’s Red Ale brewed by Ipswich Brewery in Ipswich, Mass. The light ale was surprisingly refreshing, with a slightly bitter bite that went down nice and easy like the bottom of the Baltimore Orioles batting order.Jerry Remy's Sports Bar & Grill (photo from Jerry Remy's Sports Bar & Grill website)

Ramsey, our friendly bartender, gave us a bit of info about how the pub was doing, and when we could expect a an appearance from the place’s namesake, the former Red Sox second baseman and NESN color commentator, Jerry Remy.

All indicators pointed to a friendly successful place to stop, enjoy a beer, and of course cheer on the hometown crew. With Big Papi signing for another year at more than $14 million as the 2012 DH, I hope he stops in to Remy’s and announces “a round of Remy Ale for everyone.” I also hope, I’ll be there when it happens.

Play Ball!
