Moonlight Excursion Baltic Porter from Mason Jar Lager Company

WINTER IS HERE: Breweries have prepared for the onslaught of cold weather by introducing a slew of styles fitting for the arctic air — bigger, richer beers that are great for warming you from the inside out.

The Baltic porter is a lager, meaning the yeast is fermented in cooler temperatures and then stored or “lagered” at almost freezing temperatures for several weeks or months. This gives the beer a clean and crisp flavor.

FLAVOR: Coming in at a nice 8% ABV, the porter is dark and flavorful with just the right amount of roasty flavor. Its rich malty flavors — caramel, toffee and molasses plus a smooth roastiness — make it perfect for the cooler weather. Mason Jar Lager’s Midnight Excursion Baltic Porter delivers this style beautifully.

Pause to enjoy the aroma of the beer. That’s not beer snobbery; it’s what enhances the experience of drinking craft beer. As you smell it and take a sip, the combination of aroma and flavors will put you right in front of a roaring fireplace. For a great flavor experience, pair this beer with a good burger or beef stew. It will knock your socks off!

ENJOY: While the beer comes in cans, the best place to enjoy it is the brewery itself. They have a big open taproom where you can enjoy a variety of the lagers they specialize in.
