Description:

A Northern Take on the early Porter

We've all heard of the famed London Porters, those Pre-Victorian numbers that commanded the brewing landscape before the ascendency and dominance of the Pale Ale in the early 1900s

Well it's a style that we still love and we wanted to create our own version - with our own Northern nod. Ours harks back to the early-life Porter, where Brown Malt plays protagonist, producing a subtly lower colour aspect than the near black Porters that we find most often today. Still rich and dark with a touch of mahogany glinting through from a modest use of Black Malts - a deep and creamy beer remains with chocolate notes, a little berry and the OG Boddingtons yeast adds that touch more hedgerow fruit. 

Alongside this we take the Northern Brewers hop - originally grown up our neck of the woods - offering up a little grassy-pine and a good affirming bitterness.
