  • The King’s Head
    In 1775, King George III ordered the British Navy to burn the city of Falmouth to the ground in retaliation for the Boston Tea Party. But he didn't realize that ?he was sowing the seeds of mockery that would echo even two centuries later. The rubble from the shelling formed a wharf in the harbor of the city that would become known as Portland, and on that debris, modern barmen Rick Binet and Justin O'Conner built the King's Head. Binet honors the revolutionary tradition with a thumb in the eye of the tyrant and a sizable offering of fine craft beers. Nearby breweries such as Portland's own Foundation and New Hampshire's White Birch take the spotlight among 40 drafts on tap, and from further afield come the likes of Chimay Triple and Thornbridge. Meanwhile, the kitchen serves smoked rabbit pot pies and grass-fed beef burgers to diners seated in a room featuring a 12-seat glass wine bar, with wines available by the bottle or glass, that overlooks the Wharf.
