COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after a now extinct surf break just south of Mussel Shoals, Oil Piers ™, our Robust Porter offering, has delicate hopping with a rich malt profile with undertones of dark toast and chocolate. Enjoy Oil Piers ™ by itself to fuel your next surf session like the laborers of the late 19th century or pair with rare prime rib or decadent chocolate desserts.
