Dry Dock Brewing Releases Vanilla Porter in Canned 6-Packs

dry dock vanilla porterAURORA, CO — Dry Dock Brewing Company is releasing its beloved Vanilla Porter in canned 6-packs. Celebrate the latest addition to the brewery’s canned offerings at the beer’s release party at Dry Dock’s new tasting room, Canoe Room at North Dock, on Friday, November 28 from 12pm to 6pm.

Vanilla Porter was created by Dry Dock co-owner Kevin DeLange and first brewed in 2006 on the 7-barrel brewhouse in the original 800 square-foot tasting room and brewery, known to many now as “South Dock.” This beer is a classic English-style brown porter with more than a quarter pound of Madagascar vanilla beans added per barrel. It was an immediate hit— After winning a Gold Medal at the Colorado State Fair, Vanilla Porter was one of the first Dry Dock home fleet beers made available year-round.

Dry Dock will celebrate the release of Vanilla Porter in cans on Friday, November 28 at Canoe Room at North Dock from 12pm to 6pm. Guests who purchase 6-packs to go will receive free Vanilla Porter koozies.

Beginning in December, Dry Dock Vanilla Porter will be available in 6-packs, in 22-ounce bombers, and on draft in select bars and restaurants throughout Colorado.

A brown porter with a generous dose of real vanilla beans added after fermentation, giving it an amazing complexity and a smooth rich flavor. There is nothing subtle about this beer.

food pairing suggestions: barbecue, sausages, roasted meat, blackened fish, gruyère cheese, chocolate desserts
