COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We house-smoke North Carolina six-row barley over hickory wood, imparting a sweet, subtle smoke to our hickory-smoked brown porter. Depending on your comfort level with smoked beers, you may find Hogwash subtle or overwhelming. Try it with North Carolina barbecue for some smoke-on-smoke action, or go for the Trifecta of Awesome: bacon, beer, and chocolate!
Availability: year-round, draft only for now. 5.4% ABV.

a beautiful Porter brewed with Hickory Smoked malts. Great by itself, superb with BBQ!

This is a beer you can smell and really have a great feel for how it taste. When consumed the amount of carbonation is a great compliment to it’s bold smell and flavor.

Taps opaque coffee brown with a nice, fine-bubbled tan head. Aroma features hickory smoke, roast malt and semi-sweet chocolate notes, more stout than Porter. Flavor delivers roast malt, hickory smoke, chocolate, and subtle molasses notes. This ain’t no hogwash! Firm, smooth body has good fizz. Get smoked - but please contact Lyft or Uber if you get too smoked!

Draft @ Tyler’s. Aroma of beef jerky. This is a light bodied, easy drinking beer with a lot of smokey goodness balanced with some nice malt base. A session smoked porter? Sure!

Growler from brewery taproom. Pours with a great, foamy, 1.5" head. Dark brown. Aroma is yeast, bacon, smoke, and something I can’t identify. Taste is malt, low bitters, mild smoke. Body/mouthfeel very light, almost thin. A bit dry on the finish--big carbonation bite. I had this with a burger, which went well, but I still need to try it with the recommended pairing: NC chopped BBQ. This is a rauchbier, so people will either love it or hate it. I like rauchbier, and this is a highly accessible one, as they go--call it a Rauchbier Lite. If you’ve had Schlenkerla and been a bit put off by its extreme meatiness, you should try this.
