We don't know what separates a porter from a stout, and frankly, we don't care. If it tastes good and gets us drunk, that's good enough. Luckily, we don't have to know the intricacies of brewing -- not with a guy like Erich LaSher around. He guides customers through the dizzying array of beers and wines at La Cave du Vin with scholarly precision. You want something light, but not too fruity? He's got your brew. Best of all, he doesn't make you feel like an idiot. This is beer, for Christ's sake, not Shakespeare.
