I've been to Fraunces several times in the past and I always seem to gravitate towards the whiskey flight. There's just something about sipping on the brown stuff in a room that George Washington used to rally his troops in that gets me going. But for the first time yesterday I tried their signature Porterhouse beers. Boy have I been missing out!
I had their Plain Porter and their Oyster Stout. Both had similar mouth feels (they were almost identical to a Guinness) and both were absolutely delicious. Maybe I'm late to the game, but why don't more beer people give credit where it's due? These are fantastic pints of beer that you need to try ASAP if you're a fan of of hops and barley.
They were out of the Brain Busta beer which apparently packs a punch, so I'll have to swing by sooner than later to give that a go. I'm quiet excited about this new discovery!
