Now that it is the New Year, it is time to kick off the Unafraid of the Dark II series! First beer up – Chipotle Porter.

This is a beer that Annette and I used to love home brewing years ago, and we are very excited to finally have brewed it on a larger scale!  Those of you familiar with our mission shouldn’t be surprised to hear the the porter is brewed with local chipotles. We made the chipotles by smoking and then drying some plump and gorgeous jalapenos from New Roots Farm.

This beer has a very nice chipotle aroma with some warming heat as you drink it. Yes, it does have some spice, but the beer is quite drinkable. It clocks in at 6.4% Alcohol By Volume and 36 IBU.

Note- For Unafraid of the Dark card holders, the Chipotle Porter will be available for growler fills starting today, Wednesday, January 9th (4 to 6pm.). Not a card holder? No worries, the beer will be available for regular growler hours starting tomorrow, Thursday, January 10th (4-7pm).
