Beer Recommendation: Yards Brewing Company Washington's Porter

Chef Dolores served sandwiches for our lunch at home. Our beer selection was Washington's Porter from Yards Brewing Company in Philadelphia. This is an easy beer to recommend. Drink responsibly: 7% Alc. by Vol. Click on the link to reach the website.


Detailed in a letter from the General to his officers during the war, Washington’s recipe employed molasses to aid fermentation and give rich caramel aroma to this robust, roasty ale. The recipe reflected his admiration for Philadelphia-style porters, especially those brewed by Robert Hare. Our Porter, inspired by Washington’s, is dark, smooth and complex with just a hint of dried fruit in the finish.

I like the looks of that bottle and label, Roy.  If the contents are half as good, I'd be happy.
