It's a brewpub, yes. It's a distillery, yes. It's a delight.

Oh my, yes.

Wife Persimmon, son Lewis and I were exploring Portland with the goal of finding a beer bar #1 son had visited before. We wanted to take pix of the harbor and as we walked, there...in front of us like a golden castle...was Liquid Riot.

Well, we HAD to go in.

Yes, we did.

And we found a delicious atmosphere to soothe a dreary soul on a rainy, cold Maine afternoon. Lots of dark wood, shuffleboard, pool, low music, good conversation....

But the beer?

Well, unfortunately the beer was not the best. A Belgian White Stout was offered which sounded delightful...but failed to impress. More of a Wheat with some subtle coffee under-tones, it did deliver on the promised vanilla flavor but at 5%, was too weak to be considered a stout.

But the service was agreeable and located right on the water, it's easy to find and a good place to finish up a walk of downtown Portland and all its seaside character.

Next time (and yes, we'll probably be back in a year) I would truly like to see a more varied tap menu with a coupla of darks (tripel, quad, barley wine) -- something to signify that Liquid Riot knows its Fall and I do not...DO NOT...care to sup on yet another IPA.
