But while we contemplate what breweries we will be visiting for this year's Open House we wanted to let you know that Maritime Pacific has announced the return of Bosun's Porter.
Described as a "... dark smokey porter" this beer has been a staple of the Maritime Pacific lineup of beers.
Served on draft or nitrogen (coming soon) at the taproom you are encouraged to stop and have a pint, a beer float, or try it with their Imperial India Pale Ale and make a "BLACK EYE"
5.2% alc/vol A blend of malted barleys, wheat, and U.S. Goldings hops. Dark, roasty, smoky, and smooth with a subtle hop aroma. Named after the formidable individual the captain made responsible for the rigging of his ship.
Look for Bosun's to be featured at the Jolly Roger Taproom in pints, schooners, and in growlers. Who knows, the beer might even make it's way to a local pub like Naked City, Beveridge Place, or down the street at Brouwer's Cafe.
As always if you want to see this at your pub ask your server to contact the brewery to see if they can spare a keg.
