Mallet Mike’s Rye Porter

Named after our electrician, Mike, whose mallet the production team borrowed often. The mallet itself actually fell into the mash accidentally while making this beer. Our head brewer, John, was flabbergasted to see it come out of the mash/lauter tun while he was graining out. Confusion turned to laughter & the name for this robust dark ale was born. Built upon a mixed base of stout malt and Maris Otter, which provide a smooth & slightly nutty canvas to layer specialty malts. White wheat, dextrin, & a mix of varied roasted & caramel malts give off color, complexity, & nuance. Moderate doses of flaked & crystal rye lend a light dryness & blend well into the whole.
