Great Lakes – Edmund Fitzgerald Porter

A complex, roasty porter with a bittersweet, chocolate-coffee taste and bold hop presence




Harrington 2-Row Base Malt: Allows color and flavor from other specialty malts to come through; makes for very clean beer
Crystal 77: Contributes to color and adds sweeter aroma and flavor
Chocolate: Provides deep, rich color and coffee-like flavor and aroma
Roasted Barley: Adds color and roasted flavor


Northern Brewer: Traditional bittering hop for English-style ales; provides strong bitterness to complement strong/assertive flavors of this porter
Willamette: U.S. version of English Fuggle hop. Provides fruity, floral, and spicy characteristics with mild bitterness.
