Who's up for a rich, delicious American porter? We modeled Butte Head Porter on Deschutes Brewery's porter, which has been named time and again as one of the best porters in America! Well-balanced, this beer uses chocolate malt and crystal 80 to give it deep color and wonderful chocolate notes with hints of caramel sweetness. A little white wheat and carapils round out the body and give this beer great mouthfeel and head retention! A smattering of Galena, Cascade and Hallertau gives a great balance to the malt character, and makes this beer easy to drink time and again!

Product Features

  • Similar to Deschutes Brewery's Black Butte Porter.
  • A delicious, well-balanced porter!
  • Rich cholate notes and a slight caramel sweetness make this beer highly drinkable!

Loved it!
I bought this ingredient kit to take a try at making my first porter style beer. I'm no brew master with only about six 5 gallon brews under my belt but I absolutely loved this beer and can't wait to brew it again. I enjoy sharing my beers with friends and got nothing but positive feedback from them.

Another Winner
Smoooooth, is how my neighbor described this beer. Said it was the best porter he'd ever had, and was SO glad he moved in next door! Again, lasted less than a month before that dreaded sucking noise of an empty keg. Will definitely brew this again.
