This Brewpub Exclusive Imperial Porter is a true cooperative effort! The beer was created & brewed by the entire pub staff. The name came from Zach Moyer, who named it after his favorite band, The Pain Relievaz. The team met to discuss the flavors we wanted to create and drew input from lots of our coworkers. On brew day Bryan supervised as Cara, Alison, Lisa, Matt Silverman, Joel, and Matt Patton got to work cranking out some delicious wort. We made a strong porter from Maris Otter, crystal, chocolate, black, Carafa III, biscuit, and wheat malts. We all agreed that we love porters then set out to determine what contributions would best represent the kitchen, front of the house, and distillery and still be complementary to the overall beer. It was unanimous that bacon best represents the kitchen. To represent that bacon we smoked 30 lbs of malt with Pohutukawa wood from New Zealand. Some front of the house folks love wine so we decided to add Shiraz wine juice during fermentation. To represent the Distillery we used our Jin flavor blend (juniper, orange peel, lemon peel, black peppercorns, coriander, angelica root, cucumbers, and fresh hops from our deck) at the end of the boil. Our Doggie yeast was an obvious choice to ferment the beer. We even held a contest to name the beer! Yes, there is a lot going on in this beer but there is a lot going on here at the pub so it's really the perfect representation of our little world. Enjoy it - cheers!
