COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in collaboration with Monk’s Kettle to celebrate their new outdoor seating, Porchbier is a beer meant to be enjoyed outside.

We brew it with our house saison yeast strain, local heirloom wheat from Marin and finish it with a hefty IPA-style dose of aromatic Sorachi Ace and Amarillo hops.

Enjoy this low-ABV, high-flavor Saison in the rare San Francisco sun.

beer-yum (1900) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 10, 2015
Spicy grass aroma in a hazy yellow gold pour. A refreshingly different drink from the usual Anglo IPA and weak enough to enjoy all day.

Dogbrick (13973) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 3, 2014
Sample at Good Karma in San Jose. Pours a slightly hazed yellow-gold color with a medium bone white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of herbal yeast and fruit. Light-bodied with flavors of earthy yeast, herbal hops and grainy malt. The finish is fruity with an herbal yeast aftertaste. Decent overall.

blipp (9777) - La Mesa, California, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Light spicy yeast, a little rustic, with some grainy notes, and light sweetness. Good, not great.

vtafro (7444) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Draft. Golden pour with white head. Light citrus, fruit, and yeast aromas. Very light bodied, easy flavored table/saison with light fruit and funk.

3.4
jredmond (8769) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Draft at Toronado with Linh. Pours a lightly hazy yellow golden body with thin white lacing. Aroma is lightly tart wheat, grain and clean floral hop profile. Mouthfeel is dry with the sorachi hops coming through super dry. Wheat, sour lemon and grain.

Draft. Heirloom wheat, huh? Does the ’nac use anything that’s not heirloom? Mostly clear golden-yellow color with loads of lacing. The aroma is rather hoppy with a touch of funk. Grassy, herbal, and mildly citrus. The flavor is dry and somewhat bitter. Lots of Sorachi Ace. Minimal malt character, mainly pilsner. Dry, crisp, and desiccating mouthfeel. Rather light. Nice beer for a nice day!

True to its name... A crisp dry hoppy brew that’s refreshing and light on the palate. Grapefruit citrus and and some other fruit in the aroma and flavor. Not very saison-y to me though. Seemed fairly clean and hop driven to me.

3.4
joeneugs (6372) - Livermore, California, USA - OCT 18, 2014
On tap at the Trappist. It pours a clear light yellow gold with a huge dense white head. The aroma is strong with citrus and light tropical fruity hops. Good spicy yeast. The flavor is pretty much the same. Lots of potent citrus and a decent amount of acidity. Multigrain bready malt backbone and a spicy yeast character. The bitterness is too strong and a bit off putting. Kind of like lemon pine sol. Otherwise nice.

3.5
andrepintado (3700) - Porto, PORTUGAL - OCT 10, 2014
On tap at monks kettle, san francisco. Light golden color with thin medium white head. Medium body. Medium sweetness and sourness. Aroma is bretty and fruity..

2.7
monk191 (2023) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 2, 2014
An ok farmhouse. Pours an ugly clear yellow with a bubbly white head. Smells good, citrus, grapefruit, bay leaf and a sour hint. Taste is extremely crisp and dry, lots of grapefruit, with a slightly sour, hoppy finish. Had on tap at the Trappist.
