Telegraph Stock Porter

By Jasmine · May 9th, 2011 · No Comments

Your favorite roustabout (which, by the way, is a word usually referring to circus personnel or an oil rig worker. I suspect Joe would do better with the former) discusses a tasty beer we had. Note our lovely kegerator making its small-screen debut, although we didn’t give it more than a walk-on role. Maybe next time it will get some action.

And just what is a stock porter? Joe tells you in the video, but it’s worth repeating if you’re into historical beer factoids, like me. From the Telegraph website: The name “Stock Porter” was the moniker 19th century pub keepers gave to the more expensive Porter that had been aged in their beer cellars, as opposed to “Mild Porter”, which was a less complex, less expensive, and less characterful brew.

Not exactly a summer beer, but hey, this is San Francisco.
