Kurofune Porter

Kurofune (meaning 'Black Ships') is the word Japanese used to describe the American gunboats that came to open Japan to Western trade in the 19th century. Kurofune Porter is sleek and forceful, but leaves a winning bittersweet taste of chocolate and coffee on the tongue.

Bryan's Comment
"Porter is one of the world's classic Ale styles. Historically, London was the epicenter of Porter brewing. The revival of Porter brewing in modern times is courtesy of the Craft Beer Renaissance. Porter is a robust and nourishing style – what is meant by the phrase 'liquid bread.' "

The Label Speaks

The history of humankind is tightly intertwined with the evolution of beer brewing. The Kurofune Porter label artwork highlights this interconnection, drawing an association between an important mid-19th century historical moment in Japan and a popular mid-19th century English beer style.
