Great Northern Porter

Next stop…Malt City

Originally named after the London market workers who popularized this brew, we dubbed our Porter with a nod toward the majestic railway stretching from St. Paul to Seattle. Roasted malts offer up coffee notes and lead to a slightly sweet, chocolatey finish. All aboard!


Serving Tips

Serve at 50-55 °F, in a Pint glass or a Nonick tumbler.
