H2K11: A Pumpkin Porter

If two years in a row is enough to make something a tradition, then it is our tradition to brew a holiday beer as gifts for our friends and loved ones. This year we decided to go with something a bit different.

Utilizing Sam Calagione’s recipe, we brewed up a batch of very tasty Pumpkin Porter. We are quite pleased with it and hopefully our friends will agree.
