  Sam Adams grave
by Ewingjr98

The Beantown Pub sits directly across the street from the Granary Cemetery, near Boston Common. It makes a nice spot to stop for a Sam Adams and a quick lunch. Speaking of Sam Adams, he is buried in the cemetery across the street... this bar is known as the only location where you can drink a Sam Adams while in view of his grave... kind of morbid, but interesting.

This bar has numerous pool tables and TVs in the back, while the front section makes a great spot for a quiet lunch or early dinner. Their menu includes basic bar foods like hamburgers, wings, nachos along with local favorites including clam chowder, fried calamari, and baked beans. I have always been a big fan of their specialty sandwiches ($10-$11) such as the John Hancock (Turkey Breast, Roast Beef & Swiss with Coleslaw & Russian Dressing), Paul Revere (Pastrami, Corned Beef, Swiss , Onions and Honey Dijon Mustard) and the Sam Adams (Cajun Chicken Breast, Cheddar, Lettuce, Tomato and a Dijon-Mayo).

Why is Boston called Beantown? According to Wikipedia, it "refers to early Bostonian tradition of making baked beans with imported molasses."
