With our Porter, we honor the shipwrights (shipbuilders) of Mare Island. The darkest of our offerings, this brew boasts notes of chocolate and toffee, has considerable weight, but still presents a refreshingly clean finish. The Shipwright's Porter recipe is also the base for our General Order No. 99 barrel and bunker-aged reserve porter.
