Breckenridge Vanilla Porter, come on down!


There are some weeks that leave you craving a particular beer. The frigid Atlanta winter is upon us, and while it’s not as cold as the homes and hearts of some people, it’s still too dern cold for me. The temperature, plus the busier-than-usual work week, has put a craving in my belly. A craving that can be satiated only by Breckenridge Vanilla Porter.

If you haven’t had this beer, you’ve probably got some reservations. Vanilla is a touchy ingredient, and can overpower a beer with ease. But this beer does it right, and is perfect for the winter months. If you see it on the shelf, pick up a 6-pack and let us know what you think.

But seriously, it’s like drinking candy from a glass. Mmmmm. And as the marketing dork, I’m also a huge fan of their label and 6-pack carrier. It may not stand out as much as some of the others, but it’s got a nice subtley about it. It reminds me of those old snake oil medicine ads.

  1. Try brewing up Jamil Z’s Vanilla Robust porter in “Brewing Classic Styles.” I’ve got it on tap right now ad it’s the perfect lower ABV winter beer. If you mash lower as well, 149, it loses some of it’s body and makes it really drinkable for us warm wintered Californian types.

  2. I do enjoy the Vanilla Porter. Drank 5 of them last week, in fact. (And not in one sitting, okay? Even though I could do it and would be just fine…)

  3. I’m a big vanilla porter fan. I brewed one myself recently. I’d love to send a few if you for you to review if you could give me an address to send to.

    Email me if you’re interested!


  4. When I go to Denver, I almost always make it out to the Falling Rock Tap House for drinks… The last time I was there, about a month ago, I stopped by the Breckenridge Brew & BBQ location… Good stuff. It’s not quite Atlanta BBQ, but the beer is better than I’ve had anywhere in Atlanta :-)
