Black Butte Porter

Dark as obsidian, Black Butte Porter has an earthy, burnt coffee flavor for those of you who take it without cream or sugar. Bitter and acidic, this beer is not for the faint of heart. Rather than becoming overwhelming, the astringence suffuses a bold character. If you like full-bodied beer but don’t want to be stumbling from just twelve ounces, this beer only packs 5.2% ABV.

Twilight Of The Idols

A seasonal beer brewed in the twilight of the year, autumn, this porter is layered with wintry complexity. Cocoa nibs, coffee, cinnamon, nutmeg, anise, and vanilla are all mixed together, offering a dark and rich flavor. Named after one of Nietzsche’s last texts, Twilight Of The Idols has as much depth as its namesake.

Vermonters are again in luck!
