This month, Terrapin Beer Co. is adding a smoked porter to its Side Project Series for the first time.
The beer is appropriately named Smoke on the Porter, an 8.5 percent ABV Baltic porter brewed with beechwood smoked malt before being aged on French oak. The new porter is Volume 28 in Terrapin’s Side Project Series, which started in 2008 with Side Project Volume 1: Hop Shortage Ale (6.2 percent ABV.)
It is also the second beer named Smoke on the Porter to be released this year, after New Glarus Brewing Co. shipped its Smoke on the Porter in July.
In an email, Terrapin told Tenemu that Smoke on the Porter will be packaged in six-packs of 12-ounce cans and is scheduled to be released at the brewery at an event on Oct. 22, with distribution to retailers across Terrapin’s distribution network starting “the last week of October.”
