I am a big fan of just about everything Avery Brewing does, and I'm a big fan of porters in general. So when a beautiful Saturday led to a meandering road trip to Martin City (and therefore Lukas Liquors), do you really think I'd pass up a six-pack of Avery's New World Porter?
I got to drink one Monday, and...wow. This beer is HOPPY, much more so than one would expect from the style. There are the hints of chocolate and sweetness you typically get in a porter, but with the dry, almost floral finish you would get from an IPA.
In fact, that is how I would describe this beer: a delightful porter/IPA hybrid. I really haven't tasted a beer quite like this.
