“Porter” is a dark style of beer developed in London from well-hopped, brown malt beers and drunk by the “porters” who laboured in the markets during the 19th century. “Stout” referred to a strong or robust ale, but with the advent of coffee roasters many maltsters found that they could blacken grain, imparting a black colour and mild-roasted flavour to the beer. The use of these highly roasted malts eventually spawned Stout, and without it there’s be no creamy Guinness, Murphy’s or Beamish as we know them today. Our own Porter follows the traditions of this Blue collar, working man’s beverage and salutes them!
