Entry 43: Porterpalooza at Wingman Brewers

There are many things that Wingman Brewers and headman Ken Thoburn do well. Not only is he a wonderful dancer, bourbon connoisseur, and stylish male, but he is also a terrific brewer. And every year that brewing skill culminates at Porterpalooza. If you’re a fan of Porters, porterpalooza is dang near heaven. Ken brews dozens of different types of Porters ranging from Avacado to my personal favorite Pistachio. Now if you’re a porter purist and hate flavored beers, there are even Porters with just a hint of flavor and keeps the traditional robust flavor (Like Nutella and Irish Coffee). This event is a real treat.

Sadly, this event only comes around once a year.  But don’t be sad, be thankful that many of these Porters are available throughout the year!  Peanut Butter Cup has been bottled, and the Coconut porter is available often.  Heck, many of these were available during Denizens of Darkness (Another event in December).

So mark your calendar for Porterpalooza for next year.  And maybe Uber there, or have a friend drive cause the beers are enjoyable and strong.

This years lineup –

Peanut Butter Cup

Avocado
Sriracha
Vanilla Cinnamon
Nutella
Pistachio
