Buzzards Bay 1602 Colonial Style Porter


Formerly brewed at Buzzards Bay Brewing
Westport, Massachusetts USA
Style: Porter | Ratings: 11 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: -
OK, hereís a dilemma that the colonies dealt with: we order some Porter from our cousin in England and when the hearty brew arrives via boat, well, it isnít like it was back home; the rish sweetness has dried out and the beer is decidedly tart. And so it is with our special release small batch 1602 Colonial Porter. This slightly soured beer has lots of dark roasted malts and plenty of rich layered complexity. Great brew for hearty winter fare like yankee pot roast, beef stew or robust venison dishes. Oh, and in case youíre wondering, 1602 was the year that Buzzards Bay was discovered by the English explorer, Gosnold.
