Seasonal Release: Imperial Wheat Porter

Dear Taproom Friend & Baird Beer Enthusiast:

Strength, innovation, tradition. These are three words commonly associated with the artisanal beers of modern craft brewers. They perfectly describe the winter seasonal ale we are releasing today: Imperial Wheat Porter.

New Baird Seasonal Beer Releases:
*Imperial Wheat Porter (ABV 7%):

Porter is a traditional dark ale dating back to the 18th century where it was commonly brewed in London. It was the hearty and malty beverage of the laboring classes. It was a barley malt based ale, however. Our innovation is to feature wheat as the primary malt ingredient (using three varieties in addition to un-malted roast wheat — base wheat, caramel wheat, chocolate wheat). And to render it a suitably warming libation for enjoyment on a frigid winter evening, we up the starting gravity (to 17.7 plato), thereby increasing the alcohol content ( to 7%).

Imperial Wheat Porter is a fine example of the many unique ales and lagers available to today’s beer drinkers; ones that sit at the intersection of strength, innovation and tradition. Enjoy!

Imperial Wheat Porter is draught-only. It is available for immediate release.
