Editor’s pick:It’s no secret that I love exploring local breweries and trying new brews. What you might not know is the story behind some popular local beer names, like Cloudy Candy from Mighty Squirrel Brewing or Rabbit Rabbit from Lamplighter Brewing.
Rabbit Rabbit’s name is inspired by the Cambridge rabbit population + Cloudy Candy is a combination of the beer’s cloudy appearance and the fruity taste. Find out what’s really behind the name of five more local beers here.
