BEER INFO

Missouri, United States | website

Style: English Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.40%

Availability: Fall

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Porter is a dark ale with a mild roasted character and a distinct sweetness from caramel malt. This medium-bodied porter has a velvety body with Pilgrim hops adding a subtle bitterness and East Kent Goldings hops adding aroma and flavor. The English yeast helps showcase all of these flavors in this traditional British-style porter.

In 18th Century London, the word porter was first used to describe a relatively strong, dark beer, popular amongst the working class. London brewers became famous for this style, as they began refining the process using better quality malt. The World Wars led to a higher tax on malt, resulting in lower alcohol strengths in porters. Porter nearly disappeared in the late 20th Century, but was re-introduced in London after small American brewers revitalized interest in the style.´╗┐
