Medicine Hat Brewing Brick & Mortar Porter 355 ml - 6 Cans
In the early 1900s, Medicine Hat was booming with mills and factories springing up in the city’s industrial districts. The original Medicine Hat Brewery benefited from the boom, as did the clay industry, which saw its first brickyard appear in 1886 and companies such as I-XL thrive in the city for over a hundred years. Brick & Mortar Porter is named after the clay trade that helped put Medicine Hat on the map.
This porter is a slightly smoother, sweeter version of a robust porter. Too dark in colour and high in alcohol to be considered an English porter, the Brick & Mortar Porter might be considered middle ground between an English style and robust porter. Chocolate and coffee notes are supported by caramel malts, giving it a lightly sweet finish. The perfect end to a hard day’s work.
