Return to List

Rauchbier, or smoked beer, when done right can evoke any slew of memories: camping trips, nights around a backyard firepit, stops at roadside barbecue joints or a few drops of liquid smoke. This is an American classic and has been for decades. It offers a medium amount of smoke where the porter's roast notes are not lost. Whiffs of cherry, apple wood and wet campfire all come together. A Band-Aid whiff is there, too. With a pleasing, oily character on the finish, this smoked porter continues to be the platinum standard for American rauchbier. Pair with smoked salmon, and make sure everyone has their own bottle. John Holl
