"What's HOP-ening?" Twenty-Six Acres' September 2017 Brew of the Month
Sep 19, 2017 09:17PM ● Published by Melanie Heisinger
This month is all about enjoying the cooler weather as Fall comes around with a delicious porter beer. A porter is a dark style of beer that was developed in London from well-hopped beers made from malted barley. It was first documented and coined in the 18th century during the Industrial Revolution, and is thought to be a result of its popularity with street and river porters.
Though it is similar to the stout, and their histories are intertwined due to this similarity, porters are known to be more malt-flavored where stouts are more coffee-flavored. It's all about what is used while brewing -- porters brew with malted barley and stouts are brewed with unmalted roasted barley. (Source)
Don't be afraid of the dark! Second Rodeo is an easy drinking beer perfect for an evening beside the fire pit.
At 6.9% ABV this is the perfect beer to compliment cooler evenings. We use roasted barley and chocolate malts to give this beer a nice roasted, and slightly dark chocolate flavor. You'll find that the bitterness is low in this one, so if hoppy beers aren’t your thing, or you are on a malt kick, give this one a try.
