Porter: A working man’s brew?
September 6th, 2015
Most of the writings about the origins and history of Porter say that it was popular with transportation workers of Central London, hence the name. And further, most reports point to the traditional British brewing documentation from the 1700s stating that Porter was a blend of three different styles: an old ale (stale or soured), a new ale (brown or pale ale) and a weak one (mild ale), with various combinations of blending and staleness.
