Porters developed as aged strong beers in the early 1700’s consumed by street and river Porters from which the beer derived its’ name. They were closely linked to stouts but were aged at the breweries before being sent out to pubs.

This wonderful example is certainly a treat, having won the gold medal at the 2017 Craft Brewers Pow Wow it goes down like silk and leaves you wanting more.
