"Mussels and Beer"

Here's our new dish in 616!

"Mussels and Beer"
black mussels . pork belly . parsnips . guinness air 7

It's our take on a classic combination, its almost a mussel chowder with a lot of great winter flavors topped with a Guinness air, made from Guinness (obviously) and soy lecithin that is lightly whipped.

Starts with a light bitter note from the Guinness and finishes hearty and rich with the "chowder".

Check it out for only $7 at six.one.six!
