I may have my wife grab a growler of this tomorrow:


Harriet Brewing
Dark Abbey is our Belgian-style Dubbel. It pours deep ruby-brown with an off-white head. Rum-raisin and dried fruit flavors derived from the malt and sugar are accentuated by fruitiness and subtle spiciness from the yeast. Medium-bodied, smooth, and effervescent.
~ 25 IBU
~ 7.5% ABV

can anyone recommend brands of porter? There's a local brewery (Summit) that has a fantastic porter but I would like to try others.

Hmmm, good porters. Some widely distributed breweries that make good ones are Samuel Smith (Taddy Porter), Sierra Nevada, and - probably my favorite - Anchor.

Some others that are worth checking out if you can get them:

Deschutes Black Butte Porter
Breckenridge Vanilla Porter
Wasatch Polygamy Porter - really good to be so kitschy

Thanks! I'll check some of these out I wish I would have had time yesterday to stop for something. Unfortunately I can't buy any today because the liquor stores are closed on Sundays because it's still the 1800's here. Stooooopid law.

I love it. I think it's my favorite from Summit. But before I spend all my time drinking GNP, I want to try some others first.

I've only tried the Blue Moon version (in recent memory) and it has no hint of the taste of actual pumpkin whatsoever, if that's what you mean. But it did taste pretty good.

I guess they have a few taps in bars around town, but the only place to buy their stuff is to get a growler from their location on Minnehaha near Lake.
