A Restaurant’s Take

Two hard ciders at The Independent

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

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
