Beer 101

Move over Beaujolais Nouveau.

Gose style beer – (a sour/tart, fermented, wheat-based style) is great to start off with and great for drinking with food. There are excellent local and flavored options, and they generally have a lower alcohol content (around 4-5%).

Belgian beer – a great choice would be Allagash’s Curieux, a bold Tripel aged in Bourbon barrels for 7 weeks. It has great notes of vanilla, coconut and of course, Bourbon!  A good beer for towards the end of dinner.

IPAs (India Pale Ale) – a very popular, more bitter style of beer, due to the addition of more hops, also works great. There are literally hundreds of local and foreign options in this category; stop in and we’ll be happy to give you personalized recommendations!
