Carrie Ladd Steam Porter

Oregon, United States
6.6% ABV • IBU 43

This beer is a tribute to the Steamship Carrie Ladd that ran freight and passengers from Portland to the Cascade Rapids (Cascade Locks) from 1859 to 1862. We ferment this beer with Czech Lager yeast at ale temperature to temper the sulfur that this yeast tends to throw. The unique ferment temperature provides a fresh bread aroma with light cherry fruit overtones to this already rich, roasted, and robust porter. This style was popular among the pioneers that flocked to the coastal Northwest for the gold and timber rush.
