Beer Release 12/21: Mint Chocolate Porter
Mint Chocolate Porter came about as a challenge to create a cask ale for the British Beer Co Hyannis for the day of the 2012 holiday stroll. Brewmaster Todd Marcus describes the process: “Since Mint Chocolate Porter sounded festive for the holidays we took a stab at it – and people loved it. It’s always tricky when you go outside people’s idea of “normal” but we like to keep things interesting, but not too crazy, so this beer is subtle but very enjoyable. We have connections to folks at Taza Chocolate in Somerville, who as far we see it do basically what we do but in the chocolate world – so using their Organic Roasted Cocoa Nibs was a nice fit, and resulted in a product we were happy to put our name on. There is a nice mint aroma and slight mint flavor, with pairs nicely with the chocolate malt already in our porter and the Taza chocolate. It’s perfect for the holidays!” This beer will be specialty packaged in a new 750 ml flip top bottle which will be hand bottled and hand labeled. A total of 225 bottles will be sold at $15 per bottle with a two per person limit. This beer will go on sale at 10am on Friday December 21st and sold until it is gone.
PLEASE NOTE THIS BEER IS SOLD OUT FOR 2012 – sorry it went so fast.. we hope to make more in the future
