Commercial Description
Using all-natural ingredients, this deep, slightly smoky porter evokes a hint of blueberry in aroma and flavor; just enough to entice the senses. The smokiness of the malt in combination with the sweetness of the blueberries ultimately create an incredibly balanced beer.

    Our Robust Porter aged in bourbon barrels from Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky. This is the second time for beer in the barrels so instead of a strong bourbon aroma...

  • Oliver Pagan Porter


    An ale in the “brown porter” style with a smooth mouth feel, a hint of licorice and a dry finish.

  • Bad Moon Porter


    A complex, robust porter, Bad Moon is medium to full bodied with a slightly sweet, malty presence combined with hints of chocolate and coffee.

    Blue Ball Porter starts like you want a porter to. Thick, dark, and a big dark head. More toffee and chocolate in the nose rather than roast, bit of alcohol, too. The first sip sets this porter apart and gives you the reason for the clever name; blueberries. Lots of blueberries at first. It's a little watery for a porter, but a bold finish with lots of roast, even some char.

    Just a tad over 5% ABV, so it's not going to destroy you, either.

    Not my favorite porter, but I'm kind of liking it. Props for doing something different!
