Desperate Times Baltic Porter

Prairie Dog Brewing CANADA Inc.

  • Dine In: 650mL Bottle $14.00

Dark and chocolatey, Desperate Times is our unique take on a Baltic Porter, a popular style in the Baltic region from bygone times. This beer features a malt/hop recipe similar to an American Imperial Porter, but is brewed with San Francisco Lager yeast, and lagered cold for several months, which gives it a sweeter, maltier and more bread flavour profile than an ale. Full-bodied with a balanced bitterness, this beer is surprisingly deceptive for its alcohol level.
