Gunpowder Plot Nitro
Infused Porter

Release date: Tuesday, November 5th

This annual release nitro porter celebrates the thwarting of an insidious plot attempted by Guy Fawkes & his band of anti-heroes on November 5th, 1605. Fawkes’ goal was to blow up the House of Lords with barrels of gunpowder. This year we plotted closely with Radial Coffee Roasters using locally roasted coffee beans to create a perfect roast exclusively for this beer. We soaked a portion of those pristine beans in top shelf bourbon, and combined with criminal amounts of cocoa nibs and vanilla beans. In order to unify the flavors and give it that classic British feel we conditioned it on nitrogen. So quench the conspiracy, light your fires and remember the 5th of November.
