Big Bay's limited Portside porter is in bottles this winter


Shorewood's Big Bay Brewing Co. has just launched its third limited edition brew and this one is perfectly timed for winter.

"Portside: A Little Left of Porter" debuted last winter, when Big Bay offered it on draft. But this year marks the the porter's first appearance in bottles. It's available all winter long.

I tried it over the weekend and it's a malty dark beer laced with chocolate and coffee flavors, but it's also smooth and sweet, so even if you don't normally like porters, you might give this one a try. It's medium bodied and will go great with that Christmas goose.

"We know that craft beer drinkers actively seek out new flavor profiles and ... Porters are a good fit for long, cold winters like the ones we have in Wisconsin," said Big Bay co-founder and managing partner Jeff Garwood.

The company's other limited edition craft beers were Long Weekend IPA and a wheat beer called Summer Tide.
