Somewhere between Harvard and Porter Squares where I could buy Pimm's No. 1 and Hitachino Nest White Ale today before 7 PM?

You should give University Wine Shop a call.

That is a very small area. I would also try Downtown Liquor in Davis, as they have a large beer selection.

UWS is a good choice. Also try Liquor World at Porter. Finally, despite being in the epicenter of tourist Hell, I used to find a surprising array of beer at Cardullo's back in the day.

Not too far off your path, Trader Joe's in Cambridge has the ale.

Yeah, my first guess for the Pimm's would be Liquor World, and my first guess for the beer would be Downtown Wine & Spirits, who have the best beer selection in the area (though they are in Davis, one Square past Porter).

Came in here to say Downtown Wine and Spirits.

Liquor World has an unexpectedly-large-for-its-size beer selection way in the back, they may have hitachino nest too.

Nthing Downtown Wine & Spirits and Liquor World, I've found Pimm's at each place. If calling ahead gets you no where, I'd add Ball Square Fine Wines to the list as well, though it is further afield (about a 20 minute walk from Davis or Porter)

UWS did not have Hitachino. Cardullo's only had Hitachino Ginger Brew.

Superior Liquor near Central had Pimm's.

Will forge ahead for the beer after a nap.

Liquor World stocks Hitachino Nest. Should be in the fridges down the left aisle, right at the back past the front-facing ones.

Oops, day-old posting. :)
