Meantime Porter and Karmeliet Back
Good News! Meantime London Porter and Karmeliet Belgian Triple are back in the cooler.
Meantime London Porter
We last got this beer back in May of 2010 and it was such a hit that we sold out in about 4 weeks.
Don't just take my word that this beer is great, here are a couple of it's recent awards.
World's Best Porter

Gold Medal "Exceptional" 91 points

The recipe is a recreation of an orginal 1750 porter. Seven different malts are specially chosen to bring out the classic porter flavor so loved by Londoners . Offering light roast malt on the nose and on the tongue a sweetish caramel gives way to a mouthful of smokey, dry maltiness, and an astringency on the finish that comes entirely from the brown, black and chocolate malts, rather than hops; and there are an awful lot of Fuggle hops in this Porter.

Competing brewmasters througout Belgium cite Tripel Karmeliet as one of their favorite Tripels. It's rapidly attaining status as one of the new classics of the Belgian brewing scene.
Brewed with oats, barley and wheat, Tripel Karmeliet has soft, full, rich grain character with hints of banana, vanilla, and a slight, pleasing bubble-gum aroma. A restrained hop bitterness offers perfect balance and a gentle counterpart to its substantial maltiness.
