The Porter Beer Bar Turns 5 [PICS]

The Porter Beer Bar is consistently ranked as one of the best beer bars in America. Owners Molly Gunn and Nick Rutherford never expected The Porter to be as highly acclaimed as it is, they just love craft beer and food so much the rest just is now 5 year history.

The week leading up to the anniversary, The Porter held special tap takeovers and special beer tappings. Saturday (you see below) was the grand finale. And what a finale it was. Cheers to another year Nick and Molly. Thanks for kicking so much ass.

Mother Earth Silent Night Release [PICS]

2012 marks the 3rd release of Mother Earth Brewing’s Silent Night. The name may sound tame, but the beer is anything but. Silent Night is an imperial stout brewed with Counter Culture coffee, then aged in Heaven Hill barrels for a few months prior to bottling.  Bottles went on sale at 1 pm in small town Kinston, North Carolina, with the party going well into the evening. All three years of the release were on tap too.

Invite friends, stoke the fire, and uncork a bottle of indulgence. Silent Night offers a coffee aroma and the taste of an exceptionally rich malty flavor. Robust yet smooth and black as coal, each sip is a delightful gift. Old man winter gave you just what you were hoping for.

Style: Imperial Stout (w/ Coffee, Barrel Aged)
Availability: 750 ml bottles.

9.5% ABV
