Notes/Commercial Description:
Detailed in a letter from the General to his officers during the war, Washington’s recipe employed molasses to aid fermentation and give rich caramel notes to this robust, roasty ale. The recipe reflected his admiration for Philadelphia-style porters, especially those brewed by Robert Hare (whose original brewery stood just blocks from where ours is now). Our Tavern Porter, inspired by Washington’s, is dark, smooth, and complex with just a hint of dried fruit in the finish.

Wasnt a big fan of the taste. Tasted almost like somebody poured a shot of whiskey in my beer. Had the other 2 revolutionary ales and this was by far the worst one. Usually love Yards beer but this wasnt my cup of tea
