Deschutes is well-known for their award-winning Black Butte Porter, and because our Edmund Fitzgerald Porter is also a well-loved and decorated beer, it made perfect sense for us to combine our forces to create a kind of super-porter. And so, the Class of ’88 Imperial Smoked Porter was born.
We both opted to use our house yeast, and of course local water makes a huge difference in the flavor, but otherwise both beers utilized the same recipe, which includes a mix of several roasted and smoked malts and muscovado sugar.
