A Quick History of Baltic Porters

The Baltic porter originated from English porters, named after London's hardworking porters responsible for loading ships and engaging in trade with the Baltic states. Originally crafted in the countries near the Baltic Sea, the Baltic porter is actually a lager!

What Is a Baltic Porter?

Baltic porters undergo a cold fermentation and cold lagering process, which plays a crucial role in maintaining their distinct, clean, and intricate flavors and more robust, velvety mouthfeel.

Porter beers share similarities with imperial stouts as they often exhibit flavors of cocoa, chocolate, nuts, and coffee. Additionally, they boast a higher alcohol content and are known for their deep, dark appearance.
