Port Brewing Company and The Lost Abbey

Beer tasting is a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. We spent two hours tasting about twenty beers at Port Brewing Company, also known as, The Lost Abbey. It may be the best place Jason has ever been. Port Brewing produces American style beers, while their Lost Abbey label does European style brews. The Lost Abbey sells their beer in 750 ml corked bottles, which in my opinion is a plus.

Here are our favorites of they day:

Devotion - A dry hopped, blonde ale.

Avante Garde - French style "bier de garde", farmhouse ale.

Red Barn - Spiced saison made with ginger, orange peel, and black pepper.

Ten Commandment - Brewed with raisins, rosemary, and honey.

Serpent's Stout - Imperial stout. Incredibly thick and robust.

Old Viscosity - Black as night and sludgy.

Santa's Little Helper - Imperial stout with a hoppy finish.

Angels Share - Made in bourbon barrels. Taste like an after dinner, sipping beer.

If you have the opportunity to visit the brewery, I would highly recommend doing so. If not, definitely pick some up at your liquor store. Cheers!
