Devised and brewed by our bar managers this 5.1% porter is designed to be the perfect sipping dark session beer. Kerry, Martin Keith, Lucy, Neil S, Helen, Dean, Mark, Jonny, Dan and Neil T all helped brew a small 20HL batch of this beer with our brewer George in our Fraseburgh brewery.
The beer will be named Bracken’s Porter as a tribute to our favourite four pawed friend who sadly passed away a few months ago. Chocolately, robust, warming, laid back and lots of fun - there are plenty of similarities between the two. Bracken we miss you and we hope you like your beer. Long live the original BrewDog.
