~Black Sunday Porter~
Black Sunday Porter is dark brown to almost black. It is brewed with Pale Ale malt, a small amount of Caramel malt for sweetness, and a judicious amount of black and chocolate malts to achieve its dark color without an overabundance of acridity.
Galena (guh-lay-nuh) hops were used in the boil for bittering, while Mt. Hood and Cascade hops were added late in the kettle boil and whirlpool for flavoring and aromatic qualities.
This beer is 6.0% A.B.V (Alcohol By Volume)
Black Sunday refers to May 2, 1982: The day the oil shale boom died. More than 2,000 people lost their jobs when Exxon announced it was pulling the plug on the largest boom in western Colorado history. The decision was devastating with long-lasting effects in many western Colorado communities, including Rifle, Parachute, & Grand Junction.
