Portico Chroma

Portico Chroma

American Amber Ale6.1% ABV

Portico Brewing CompanyWaltham, MA

This Amber ale was brewed with Rye and four American hop varieties. Starting malty with a bit of spice, this beer finishes with a dry hop bite. The rye imparts an earthy quality to the first sip, balanced by a sweetness from the malt. All of the hop additions were carefully selected to give it first a heavy herbal aroma, followed by a fruity, spicy flavor with moderate bitterness.

Kölsch5.4% ABV

Portico Brewing CompanyWaltham, MA

'FUZZY LOGIC': Reasoning that is approximate rather than fixed or exact For our first beer we present our take on a Kolsch, a traditional German beer from Cologne, Germany. Built from the ground up with the best North American malted barley and wheat, combined with a touch of German hops, this beer has a slightly citrusy and sweet malty character with only a hint of bitterness. Our special Belgian yeast imparts a signature fruit and floral aroma, making it a refreshing beer for any occassion.

'RENDITION': A performance or interpretation If one good turn deserves another, this beer is the favor we did for Fuzzy Logic, our Weiss Kolsch. In riffing on our flagship beer, we altered the malt profile, played with the Belgian yeast, and added some all natural raspberry, resulting in a subtly-sour summer ale.

Portico Saison Charrette

Portico Saison Charrette

Saison6.0% ABV

Portico Brewing CompanyWaltham, MA

'CHARRETTE': French word for ?cart? In 19th century france, when architecture students were pressed for time, they collaborated with everyone they could to complete their projects at the last minute. Then they?d put the finishing touches on their blueprints on the way to the studio, in their case on route in a cart. This tradition inspired our farmhouse ale, which we created by true charrette - partnering with local farmers and by consulting with saison experts.

Portico Sett Seven

Portico Sett Seven

Wee Heavy7.7% ABV

Portico Brewing CompanyWaltham, MA

'SETT': The base sequence of threads in a Scottish Tartan Sett appeals to our uninhibited obsession with design. This one was the seventh variation of our original recipe, but first in our hearts. The tartan we created has seven lines, each one getting larger, representing the beer getting closer to our goal. This smooth Scotch Ale is boiled for 90 minutes, during which we add brown sugar into our direct-fire brew kettle to impart a toasted caramel flavor. Malt forward, slightly hopped.
