Porter is a style of beer that was developed in London, England in the early eighteenth century. It was well-hopped and dark in appearance owing to the use of brown malt. this paticular porter is a classic plum porter made with locally sourced Damson plums. The main characteristic of the damson is its distinctive rich flavour; unlike other plums it is both high in sugars and highly astringent.
Our damsons are locally picked by the team at Ashover and volunteers in the area.we aim to use the freshest produce available. Janine our head brewer prides her self on foraging for locally produced products and Damson porter really shows off her hard work.
