SMUTTYNOSE ROBUST PORTER

GOLD MEDAL WINNER - Porter , 2001 Great American Beer Festival

JUDGED GRAND CHAMPION - Best Porter in the USA - 10th Annual US Beer Tasting Championship

This hearty, mahogany colored ale is brewed to evoke the dark, full-bodied ales that were a favorite of dockworkers and warehousemen (hence the name "Porter") in 19th century London. It is a good bet that when Dickens' Mr. Pickwick sat down for a pint, we would have been drinking an ale much like our Robust Porter.This is a smooth and very drinkable beer, characterized by its well-balanced malt and hops, plus subtle notes of coffee and chocolate.

"Full-bodied and malty with undertones of coffee and chocolate and a bright, hoppy finish, in style it's like Cary Grant's accent: the best of British and American." - The Boston Globe, November, 2005

THURS AUGUST 28, 6:30 pm

Brewer’s Reserve Limited Edition Series will be available. This latest Batch is an Imperial Cherry Amber. Unlike its hoppy counterparts, this Double Amber is moderately hopped with cascade hops, and is brewed with a natural tart cherry to balance it’s malty base with just a mild cherry accent. We are proud of this one and hope you enjoy it.

First to feature:
The draft only Oktoberfest release from RH. This Dunkel Lager (keenly named “Dunkel Fester” by Chris Walsh) will have more toffee and chocolate flavors while retaining the superb drinkability of a traditional Dunkel.
