Brewery: Great Lakes Brewery
Style: American Porter
ABV: 6.5%        IBU: 30

Taking advantage of the opportunity, I also picked up several cans of Apocalypse Later, a bottle of another Project X creation The Last Vestiges of Winter, and a growler of the truly incredible Swamp Juice #9, a mix of IPAs including Karma Citra, Robohop, and Canuck Pale Ale.
