Beer and Cheer: Alaskan Smoked Porter

Alaskan Smoked Porter

Alaskan Brewing Company

It's really quite simple. Alaskan Smoked Porter is one of the best beers ever made. It is like a rare gem in a field full of sandstone, a shooting star, a pearl in the oyster that is my local liquor store. I read about this seasonal beer many years ago in a magazine article and tracked it down while I was living in California. And the article was right.

The intense, smoky flavor and dense malts make drinking a bomber bottle of this porter a near-religious experience, and certainly better than eating. It wasn't available in Colorado until this year, however, when Alaskan thankfully began distributing in the state. Now, I can start thinking about the state of Alaska in a positive way again. - Jonathan Shikes
