Epicentre: Boston

Epicenter traditionally refers the central point of something. At Collective Arts Brewing, the central point of our universe are the places we can find creative and artistic people, art and culture. The following is a pictorial field guide to putting your finger on the pulse of the city. The best art, beer, food and culture in Boston, with some insider advice from our friend Andy Bablo at Steeze Magazine.

Best view of the city? Check out the rooftop bar at the Envoy Hotel for arguably the best Boston photo op.

During the winter, keep warm inside an igloo + sip on mulled wine at The Envoy.
