Now resident once again in his home country of Finland, former regular at the Junction in Castleford and most certainly a lover our beers, Janne Lehvonen has just found our 1872 Porter in Helsinki. Quite a discovery and a reminder of his adopted county of Yorkshire.
At 6.5% ABV our 1872 Porter is a beer which really needs no introduction. Arguably the most decorated beer in recent British brewing history. A rich, complex, dark ruby porter from an 1872 recipe. It has an old port nose, coffee and bitter chocolate flavours from four malts including finest Maris Otter and English hops. Supreme Champion Beer of Britain. Three times National Winter Ales Champion.
