Sodbuster Porter is a beautifully balanced, robust beer that pours black with a thick tan head. Dominated by coffee, chocolate, roast, and faint hints of smoke; this porter is rich and full on the palate, providing you with the fortitude to make it through North Dakota winters.
Sodbuster wraps you in comfort like a warm blanket on a winter night. I just want to crawl inside and take a nap.
~ Bill Lempe, Irish
The Goldings hops are a perfect fit for a dark, smooth ale like the Sodbuster. Goldings hops provide a balanced bitterness that finishes clean and a floral, spicy aroma that lends itself perfectly to this beer.
The NW Pale Ale malt and the toasty Munich malt provide a sturdy backbone. That framework supports the layering of rich caramel malt and multiple dark roasted malts that make this incredibly complex and satisfying.

6.1% ALCOHOL BY VOLUME
