Clam chowder is undoubtedly Massachusetts’ most famous dish, and when you pair that with a delicious craft beer, well you’ve got yourself one of the finest meals in New England. You can find clam chowder on just about every menu across the state, but not all chowdahs are created equal. We’ve taken the guesswork out of it and prepared an epic road trip itinerary that will take you all over the Bay State, sampling the best clam chowder and craft beer in Massachusetts. We wouldn’t want to encourage drinking and driving, so we’ve also marked out some fabulous Best Western hotels to rest your head in between stops.
