“We only offer beer and wine, but we wanted to give people the opportunity to have a mixed drink, so we created a list of beer cocktails. The Black Velvet is a classic that’s made with equal parts champagne and stout beer. We created a twist on it by adding crème de cassis, which brightens it up a little, and a maraschino cherry. Even though it’s a Belgian-style stout, Allagash Black is not overwhelmingly heavy. It actually has more of an aromatic floral note to it, which really marries well with crème de cassis, a black currant-based liqueur that adds just the right amount of sweetness and tartness. This drink can be served as an aperitif, but at the same time it’s rich enough to stand up to anything on our menu.”
