Sierra Nevada Porter
A great example of a classic style porter produced here in the US. A deep brown beer with plenty of flavors
to chew on : Roast, Toffee, Chocolate, Coffee, Malt, Toast. All the great stuff that makes a Porter a great
beer just to sip and contemplate.
Ths use of highly attenuative American Yeast leaves this beer just a bit more dry than you might find with an English style porter.
