RECIPE OF THE MONTH: PORTER

By Hoptron Brewtique on 2/24/2015

"And what this flood of deeper brown,
Which a white foam does also crown,
Less White than snow, more white than mortar?
Oh, my soul!  Can this be Porter?

-The Déjeuné

Only one style of beer could elicit such praise and that style, of course, is the marvelous Porter.  My personal favorite style of beer to brew (mostly because it's my favorite style to drink), the Porter is a beer whose history is as rich and complex as it's flavor.

COOKING WITH BEER BECAUSE COOKING IS MORE FUN BUZZED (Just Kidding)

This recipe, taken from Jacquelyn Dodd’s “The Craft Beer Cookbook” (Adams Media, 2013) uses our style of the month, porter, to make a fantastic black bean soup.  And, since there’s no meat in this recipe, even I can eat it (bonus points for those who make this AND bring it for me to eat).

PORTER

By Hoptron Brewtique on 2/3/2015

You know one of the best things about beer?  I mean, other than the drinking it (and the happy after effects)?  The best thing for me is that the history of beer is really the history of civilization.  We saw this with the backstory of IPAs and we also see it with our next Beer Style of the Month, good ol’ Porter!
Now, as sexy a style that IPAs are, porters are a bit the opposite.  If IPAs are like the cool kid, porters are a bit like your grandpa.  You feel like they’ve always been there and always will be, but that they’re just a little less spunky.  And while that might seem true, that they are dependable  but old school, porters were born in a time of monster economic and social upheaval – the English Industrial Revolution – and for a significant amount of time, porters were the be all and end all.  THE original cool kid......
