Cumberland Brews Restaurant Review: Cumberland's fine beers include pale and amber ales, a nitro porter, and even mead. The pint quality is matched by the kitchen, which delivers pub fare. Consider the chicken wings, served traditional Buffalo style or in spicy Jamaican jerk or peanut-scented Thai versions. Other favorite starters include the black bean nachos and roasted red pepper hummus. Among the sandwiches are a cornmeal battered fried fish and a quarter-pound bison burger. The ever-changing selection of nightly specials, ranging from quesadillas to lamb chops, is as responsible as the ales for packing the tiny dining room and bar. If you have room after your meal and second pint, check out the malted milk shake for dessert. If all seats are taken, don’t despair. Find the stairs at the back of the room, which lead to a cozy second floor dining area with overstuffed furniture and a second set of taps.
