I know nothing about beer, so here is the description from the website of the beer Steve had. He enjoyed it enough to order a second pint.
4.8% ABV 20 IBU’s
Originating in England, porters evolved from a blend of beers known as “three threads” . A precursor to stout, porters are said to have been favored by porters and other physical laborers. Medium bodied, rich roasted character with hints of chocolate and a faint bit of caramel.
Malts: Pilsner, Crystal 70-80, Cara-pils, Roasted Barley, Chocolate Malt
Hops: Nugget, Fuggles
I had the PEI mussels ($10). They were sautéed with Fisherman’s Kolsch Ale, coarse ground mustard, garlic, and lemon. The mussels were tender and the broth had nice flavor, with a kick. My only complaint is that the bread was charred broken pieces of cottony Italian. I also ordered fries, which were an exorbitant $7, only $3 less than my large plate of mussels. They were hand cut and crispy, but chipotle aioli did nothing for me. Steve had the swordfish kabobs ($16) with quinoa, Kerry had the meatloaf special ($15) and Bryan ordered the baked haddock ($16). Everyone seemed to enjoy their food and the waitress was friendly. There was a 30 minute wait on a chill Saturday night, but we found some seats at the bar for the first round of beers.
