Port Brewing celebrates their 5th anniversary with a hoppy pale ale – Anniversary Ale. Port was founded in 2006 by Vince and Gina Marsaglia with Tomme Arthur and Jim Comstock. Comstock acquired the old brewhouse from Stone Brewing Co. to take the 7 barrel brewhouse in Carlsbad to the larger brewery you see today. The larger brewhouse allowed Tomme Arthur to create The Lost Abbey.
Port talks about the flavor of Anniversary Ale:
Anniversary Ale is light gold to pale orange in color and offers a potent aroma of fresh pine and citrus with some warming alcohols present..The taste is a thick, chewy hop presence only barely contained by balancing malts. The finish is pure hop expression with a moderate warming alcohol sensation.
