Our Chocolate-Covered Pineapple Porter is all grown up.
This brew got its start in early 2020 for its first limited can release, and it lucked out getting released right before the pandemic, so we guess you could call this one a pandemic baby!
We get calls and messages all the time asking for more stouts and porters, and since we make such a wide variety of brews, when we do go to the dark side, we make sure it’s for something really special.
This time, we’re bringing back Chocolate-Covered Pineapple Porter bigger and better than ever!
It’s a brew that almost didn’t make it, but thankfully Creative and Social Marketing Coordinator Courtney Rosenberg kept fighting hard for this one. Much like Mexican Coffee Stout, this idea got its start from our 2018 Beer Fantasy Draft where departments came up with a list of potential brews to create.
You might be thinking…wait a minute…chocolate-covered pineapple? But if you didn’t get to have this limited release in its Tasting Room debut, you’re missing out. The flavor and aroma combo did NOT come to play.
Porters have a lighter body, and naturally have more chocolate overtones, which make the style the perfect home for this brew and complement to the fruit notes.
Chocolate-Covered Pineapple Porter is just that: a smooth, chocolatey porter conditioned on the choicest pineapple puree. Sweet with a touch of tartness from the pineapple, Chocolate-Covered Pineapple Porter is a well-balanced beer that's as delicious on its own as it is as your new favorite dessert.
This year, we made sure to scale this one up so that folks throughout New Jersey and the surrounding area could get their hands on some. Our design team created the ultimate decadent logo for us packaged in a sweet new island-themed can design!
