    BeerBasics visits… Novare Res Bier Café

    A destination for beer aficionados, this street-level beer-bar, with outside patio, is not too easy to find. Nevertheless, it is worth the effort. Novare Res Bier Café can be found at 4 Canal Plaza, Portland, ME, on a hot summer afternoon it affords both a cool cellar-like area and a good-sized outdoor patio.

    The cellar-like bar is large enough to seat the patio crowd should the weather not cooperate. The beer taps (all 25 of them) are impressive but the beer-menu is even more impressive. Belly-up to the bar and you can see the immense cold box where the bottle collection is kept, at just the right temperature.  

    This time, we were on our way from one place to another, there was time for only one (or two) draught brews and a bit of a rest before later indulgences.

    However, we did return later in the evening for…

    Desert!

    (Young's Chocolate Stout ice cream, fresh raspberries, and toffee sauce.)


    Now that I have your interest, how about a quick visit?
