Here's Johnny!

This beer was inspired by the rich and often dark history of the London porters. Porter beers were the working man's / women's sustenance. General laborers, called Porters, would transport goods across London, and with no time or money for food they would sneak the odd beer here and there when they could. As a consequence, the dark, malty, beers that they drank became know as 'Porters'.

These beers were originally made with malted barley that was malted (dried) over an open fire. This process gave the beer smokey and charcoal notes. Then came the Industrial Revolution with clean burning coal and the age of clear, bright lagers due to a much cleaner malting process.

We love a bit of history, particularly beer history. This beer is an ode to a simpler time, one where beer wasn't mass produced.

Tasting notes: Campfire smoke evolves to a smooth, moderate body and earthy hop bitterness, finishing with layers of dark chocolate and espresso. Smoke up Johnny...
