Porters were invented as a fortifying drink for the rough and tumble working class of London’s bustling markets. It was brewed for good folks with calluses on their hands, doing work that needed to be done. We salute those working class heroes with our classic Porter, brewed in the hop-forward American style and featuring a depth of malt flavour and complexity with roasted notes of black coffee and cocoa.
