To celebrate A&H's 4th Birthday they're launching their freshly brewed Baltic Porter at some of their favourite venues in London and the UK (including us!). A&H is a micro-brewery in the arches near London Bridge.
Baltic Porters are bottom fermented, cold conditioned cousins of Porter, London’s greatest beer style.
They developed from the early porters that were gaining huge popularity around the world, and are one of many spin-off styles that emerged as a result export. The long, cold conditioning phase of the brewing process, along with the use of continental malts such as Munich, lead to a smoother, rounder porter, with lest roasted and coffee notes. Fermentation with bottom acting lager yeast also leads to a crisper finish than traditional, warm fermented porters.
