McMenamins Pub Crawl 2017 — photo 35 of 269: A sample of Sgt. Pepper’s Porter which I tried at the McMenamins Mall 205 Pub in eastern Portland, Oregon. According to the brewer:
“About twenty days ago today, a beer was brewed that guarantees to raise a smile. So may I introduce to you a deliciously light, coffee-toned porter with slight hints of chocolate and smoke. So sit back, enjoy a pint, and let the evening go. Just remember, it’s wonderful to drink it. It’s certainly a thrill. It’s such a lovely porter beer, I’d like to take it home with me. Fill a growler and take it home.” Measurements: 5.6% ABV • 26 IBUMy notes from that day read: “Almost like a stout ... too much of a coffee taste ... yuck!” May 2017. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
