Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: SixpointJMH on 09-30-2003

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.

Nice porter. Pours a nice dark colors with a cinger head that fades some. Leaves some nice lacing. Overall a nice drinkable porter
