Truly a worldly beer, Baltic Thunder represents the Baltic Porter style admirably. Exhibiting the enticing, toffee roast of the British porter that originated the style in the 18th Century, and the soothing, subtle fruit nuance of contemporary brews that flourish from Helsinki to Vilnius today, this dark lager honors the Baltic god of thunder. Created by an inspired collaboration of brewers and tempered with a touch of turmoil, Baltic Thunder rolls on to bring you enchanting light as the darkness fades.
The Baltic porter style was very rare when Tom Baker started brewing Perkuno’s Hammer in the late ‘90s in New Jersey. Tom’s brewery did not survive but his inspired beer did, as he was willing to collaborate with us on this recipe. Some proceeds from each sale of Baltic Thunder go back to Tom, of course.
Malt: imported 2 row German malts
Hops: whole flower German hops
Exhibiting the toffee roast of a well-balanced porter, Baltic Thunder also features a rounded, mildly fruity impression to finish. Long, cold aging renders this dark lager full and calmly smooth.
