Porter is a traditional dark ale dating back to the 18th century where it was commonly brewed in London. It was the hearty and malty beverage of the laboring classes. It was a barley malt based ale, however. Our innovation is to feature wheat as the primary malt ingredient (using three varieties in addition to un-malted roast wheat — base wheat, caramel wheat, chocolate wheat). And to render it a suitably warming libation for enjoyment on a frigid winter evening, we up the starting gravity (to 17.7 plato), thereby increasing the alcohol content ( to 7%). Imperial Wheat Porter is a fine example of the many unique ales and lagers available to today’s beer drinkers; ones that sit at the intersection of strength, innovation and tradition. Enjoy!

pitch black color. Chocolate tootsies roll nose. Very smooth rich chocolate bar with nuts taste, but never sweet. Full bodied. A touch sweet. Nice

Soft beer in all respects, but has it’s charm. Wheaty, a bit of chocolate, a hint of roast, sprinkle in a touch of berries. Smooth off the hand pump. Not really imperial, but a good porter.
