We went to Portland, ME early this summer. It was freezing. I ended up buying a beautiful knit sweater at an artists market. Well, Tyler bought it for me! We did our usual walking tour and went around the whole city. Hot Supper was one of our favorite stops. Great atmosphere and amazing food. Tiny little place, we were so lucky to grab a booth at the window. Beer on tap and some interesting finds. The menu was small and creative and hit the spot with everything we tried. We recommend anything with duck!
Around the corner inside the store was one of the best selections of beer we've ever seen in such a small space. It was actually even better curated than some of the bigger stores we've gone to. We love our beer and were excited to see new things to try and our old favorites, along with hard to get reserves. The best part was that the clerk drew us a map so we could get to the beer garden down the street. We love a beer shop that shows us how to get to more beer!

|The bar we were lead to - Novare Reis beer café - |
was amazing. Over 2000 bottled beers on tap.
German style seating, so everyone sidled up on
benches. We sat at the bar and marveled at the beer
list. It was actually really overwhelming. I tried
something new in kind of a close my eyes and point
kind of way. I could see how you'd be drawn
to your standbys if you didn't have something
specific in mind. You could definitely trust your
bartender to recommend though!
|We ended up at a small Irish bar and |
gorged ourselves on more food. Lots
of mixed and layered beer options. This
was not my usual black velvet. And
really, nothing can compare to a bv,
but I tried something new. I bet
in Portland these glasses are hard to
get rid of! Shipyard Export is one of
my all time favorites.
