Salting your beer

This is not a post about adding salt to you beer. It is about Sea Salt, a new (to us) seafood restaurant on San Pablo Avenue in Berkeley, CA. I read about Sea Salt in a recent issue of Foodism and we ate there to celebrate Valentine's Day, a week early.

Background: pilsner

Beers: Scrimshaw Pilsner; Eye of the Hawk (similar to Sierra Nevada)
Taste: We can't remember anything about the pilsner but the Eye of the Hawk was medium bodied, somewhere between creamy and crisp, perfect with oysters, fried shrimp and grilled sardines.

Sweet Maine shrimp; local sardines
