A Restaurant’s Take

Two hard ciders at The Independent

Try two New England brews at the Union Square bar and restaurant.

John Blanding/Globe staff

The Independent in Union Square, Somerville, offers two divergent settings for drinking hard cider. To the left as you enter, there’s a raucous watering hole. Through the other set of doors, there’s a quieter restaurant with a tame bar atmosphere. Both sides serve two local brews: Downeast Cider (which recently moved from Maine to Leominster) is on tap alongside bottles of Bantam Cider, made in nearby Inman Square, Cambridge.  — Glenn Yoder
