Red Wing lies at the head of the greatest lake on the Mississippi River – Lake Pepin. Twenty-five miles long and surrounded by mountainous bluffs, Lake Pepin is a natural and recreational paradise. But legend says that it is also the home of Pepie, the mysterious creature that lives in the dark depths of the lake. It is only fitting, then, that Pepie’s Porter be a dark beer with a mysterious complexity in flavor that derives from several varieties of caramelized, flaked, and roasted barley. While you might not be able to locate the elusive Pepie, you can always depend on finding satisfaction in a Pepie’s Porter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Majority of 5 oz. pour, on tap at the brewpub. Pours a medium to dark brown with a copper / amber hue and beige head. Smoky, umami aroma features scents of coffee, dark chocolate, and tobacco. Nice smell. Nice, light, roasted flavor features a pumpernickel bread element. Smoky and meaty taste with some cream. Well balanced porter. Quite tasty. Medium body. Lively, frothy, and oily in the palate. Quite enjoyable overall.
