Great Northern Porter

Next stop…Malt City

Brewed with roasted malts that offer up caramel, chocolate and coffee notes, Summit Great Northern Porter is a slightly sweet, slightly bitter brew. A complex malts and bold hop blend give off a toasted, chocolatey finish.

Conversation Starter

Great Northern Porter was the second style ever brewed by Summit Brewing Company. It’s based off of the British Isle favorite and named for the majestic railway that stretches from St. Paul to Seattle. For nearly 35 years, this brew has been a staple at our brewery. Moving from year-round to limited, this beer is available on draught and in 6- and 12-packs of 12oz cans.


Serving Tips

Serve at 50-55 °F, in a Pint glass or a Nonick tumbler.
