Beer menu: L & N Wine Bar & Bistro.

As reported during a recent thread at the Louisville Restaurants Forum, here is the current bottled beer list at the L & N Wine Bar and Bistro:

Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold
Bells’s Oberon
La Fin du Monde
Bell’s Two Hearted Ale
Rogue American Amber
Theakston’s Old Peculiar
Dogfish Head Raison D’Etre
Flag Porter
Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA
Ommegang Three Philosophers
Miller High Life
Bud Light
Erdinger Wheat NA

There's lots of ground covered for such a deceptively small list. All the major brewing traditions, good mix of light and dark – strong ones, mild ones, sweet and hoppy ones. If it were me, I'd add an Imperial Stout (Old Rasputin?) and perhaps Schneider Weisse (very versatile with food).

Of course, L & N is the place to go for wine by the glass, with a Cruvinet dispensing system that provides approximately 100 different wines by the glass. You can design your own wine flights, or better yet, have the server do it for you (my busman's holiday).

Given that wine's their thing, L & N's beer list shows evidence of thoughtful design -- and a hearty "bravo!" for that.

What, still no local beer? Love L&N, but they need a draught system and local beers to go along with a great lineup of food and wine.
