First of our new introductions at Just Beer – Featured Beer of the Month, or BOTM (unfortunate acronym, but hey-ho) is Anspach & Hobday‘s The Porter.
Paul (Anspach) & Jack (Hobday), two London graduates, founded Anspach & Hobday in the pursuit of a better beer experience. Guided by the wave of contemporary craft beer and inspired by the illustrious brewing heritage of London, Anspach & Hobday’s vision is to brew and curate the best of beer and put London back at the centre of the map for beer in Europe. The Brewery and Tap is based in an Archway in Bermondsey, London. Just a stone’s throw from the Shard and Tower Bridge. And right in the heart of the Victorian brewing quarter.
Their award-winning flagship beer, The Porter (6.7%) is a beer style that dominated London’s past, re-invented by A&H for today. Flip the lid off this bad boy to be greeted with aromas of dark chocolate, berry fruits and freshly ground coffee. Smooth as silk on the palate, full-bodied and complex roast flavours, but with a good balance of bitter/sweet. This one is to be savoured. Don’t miss it!
