Where to get porter ale?

bxgirl Dec 2, 2007 06:43 AM

On this snowy day in Manhattan, I am thinking of making Molly Stevens' braised short ribs. Can anyone suggest a place in the West Village where I can get porter ale? Also, is there a substitute I can use if I can't get it?
As a non-beer drinker, I have no idea what the difference is between beer, ale, and porter ale!!

    Back when AAB was cookbook of the month, someone asked just this question on the beer board. Here's a link to that thread, which offers quite a few substitutes.
