While walking Commercial Street, Val and I found a place called 1620 Brewhouse. It had a decent selection of beers and the food was also quite good. They have clam fries, which is something I’ve never heard before, but picture a plate of fries with some New England clam chowder on top of them. I was definitely questioning how good they would be, but after ordering them, I’m a believer. They also had a kale soup that was really good. Since Provincetown used to be a big Portuguese town, almost every restaurant has their take on kale soup. The soup basically consists of kale, spicy sausage, potatoes and broth. It’s my new favorite. Anyways, this was the first beer I had there.
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Classic German-style Märzenbier. Malty notes of toffee, biscuit, caramel + timelessness.”
Random: I visited this brewery with Val years ago and loved it. They had ping pong there.
The beer poured with a half a finger of white head that dissipated quickly and left a lot of lacing on the glass. It left a small crown as well. The body was clear and bright orange-brown with moderate carbonation. The nose was sweet with some toasted malt. There was toffee present as well. The taste was light and sweet. There was a lot of malt and toffee with some honey as well. Biscuit and grain came through next. There was a touch of pine as well. The body was crisp and medium thickness with generous carbonation. It had a quick finish with toffee and biscuit. This beer went down easily, but just wasn’t my favorite of the style.
