During the 31 days of December, we will be sharing our favorite regional/winter seasonals/holiday beers with the help from our fellow beer enthusiasts. We hope that you tune in every day, to hear our stories and share our holiday cheer.

Commercial Description:

Get that warm & fuzzy feeling. When the days get shorter and the shadows longer, the storm door goes on signaling the end of summer. So we meet the season head on with a beer sturdy enough for the harsher weather. Vanilla beans and cinnamon sticks enhance our rich, dark malt to create a warming finish to sustain us all until next summer.




Why I selected Storm Door Porter:

Snow has yet to hit the pavement in our neighborhood, but our frozen swimming pool and blazing fireplace are sure signs that winter is on the way.  Storm doors are now gracing our homes—and Riverwalk’s Storm Door Porter should be on all our palettes and in our bellies! Riverwalk’s Screen Door Summer is my summer beer of choice, and their Storm Door Porter is quickly becoming my winter go-to.  It’s dark, filling, with just the right hint of vanilla bean and that warmth that sits in the belly comfortably on a cold day.  While some porters are a little too boozy for me, Storm Door passes my Goldilocks test—it is just right.  Storm Door comes in a convenient canned 4-pack, so are great to share and give as gifts this season.  If we get hit with some major snow this year, be neighborly and share with your snow-shoveling friends. I know I will.
