Brewpub Exclusives

Original Release Date:

An Imperial sorta-porter fermented with Brazilian Rapadura sugar and a couple of really unique New Zealand ingredients.

We collaborated on this beer with our friend Luke of Epic Brewing in Auckland, NZ. To make the Portamarillo we first grilled tamarillos (sweet, fruity NZ tomatoes) over Pohutakawa wood at our pub then pureed and added them to the boil. Luke sourced this unique wood for us from his motherland - Pohutakawa has found an important place in New Zealand's culture, both of the European settlers and Maori - being venerated for spirituality, strength and beauty.

The wood and tamarillos do truly add a smoky, fruity, roasty beauty to this beer.

Portamarillo is scheduled to be tapped at 3pm on 7/09/2010 and will be available until it is gone.

Due to the limited availability of our Brewpub Exclusive beers, Portamarillo is not available to go in growlers. Sorry.
