I check out the darker side of Bull Jagger Brewing Company with their Original No. 19 Baltic Porter.
I frequent many beer bars in Portland, but I just discovered that perfect tap list was sitting right under my nose.
Bull Jagger’s is red, malty and one of the most drinkable beers I’ve had all year. (via Portland Press Herald)

In a craft beer market where strong hop-forward IPAs and imperial stouts are everywhere, it is easy to forget that in the U.S. there are some excellent Belgian style and Trappist-inspired beers to be had. While I’m not shy about being a fan of almost every one of the Smuttynose “Big Beer” series, I honestly forgot about Gravitation and haven’t had it in quite some time.
Turning the pages bak in craft beer history, we find Jack McAuliffe’s New Albion Brewing Company at the forefront of the craft beer renaissance. Opened in the 1970s, McAuliffe’s goal was to replicate some of the tasty brews that he had gotten a chance to sample while abroad serving in the Navy. Not finding close on American shores, he sought out ways to make the beer himself.
