This awesome book: The Great American Ale Trail by Christian DeBenedetti list The Porter as one of it’s stops!
We are also listed as one of the best places for a burger and beer and a top spot for rare bottles!
The bottle count grew from around 500 to nearly 800 earlier this year, when Gunn and Rutherford took over the space next door that had previously housed a tattoo parlor. They increased their storage and built a wonderfully atmospheric private room, the Beer Cellar, lined with wooden shelves of vintage bottles such as a 2009 Scottish Harviestoun Ola Dubh aged in whiskey casks. Belgian high-gravity beers, American stouts, and sour beers, kept at a constant 65 degrees, age particularly well, deepening in nuance over time. The Beer Cellar seats twenty-five and is now routinely used for special family-style menus (for example, a themed smoked fried chicken and biscuits dinner) served at a long farm table.
Whoo Hoo! We were nominated for “Best Bar Program” and are a semifinalist for the award! We are so thrilled, honored and humbled to be amongst the ranks of these great bars!
