Episode #241: Blind Tasting: America’s Best Porter In A Six Pack

A bit of a blast from the past here. Shot last winter, we attempted to find the best porter you can find in a six pack. A few things got in our way, but I think in the end we came to some conclusions.

  1. From "Darwin G" :

    I really enjoy it when you guys do these kinds of episodes. Awesome stuff.

    I actually did a blind of Deschuttes and Edmund. Deschuttes won for me. However, I personally like Founders the most of the bunch.


  2. From "Derek Kasperlik" :

    Distorter Porter from Greenbush Brewery is a great 6’er porter!

  3. From "RandyM" :

    trying my first porter on a cold Tennessee night, (10 degrees) luckily I had chosen to purchase the Founders at my local store. Really liked your video, thanks !
