During the Civil War our ancestor, Stephen Fraley, was ambushed and attacked by men with a grudge. Fraley evaded them by running into his home and hiding underneath his wife’s large hoop dress. To honor his life we brew this London-style Running Porter - a style which dates back to the heyday of Porters. In the early 1800s, Porters were either aged upwards of 18 months and called Keeping Porters or served fresh and called Running Porters. Enjoy our adaptation of a longtime favorite with notes of chocolate, light berry and oaky hops in honor of Stephen Fraley.
