NEWS: Salcombe Brewery Co. launches new Island Street Porter


Salcombe Brewery Co. is delighted to announce the launch of a brand new addition to its much-loved range of beers. Island Street Porter (ABV 5.9%), the third beer in the brewery’s craft beer range, is a rich velvety porter and can be purchased online, from local stockists or directly from the brewery in 330ml bottles.

Brewer Sam Beaman comments: “ We decided to brew Island Street Porter to contrast with our hop driven beers, which are on the light gold to amber spectrum. These are great session beers but we wanted to produce something a little bit different. Creating a porter offered the opportunity to branch away from our core range in terms of colour, style and strength. Island Street Porter is the result of many months of planning and development and we are thrilled with the results. It is a must for anyone in search of a beer with bags of flavour. It’s fast becoming a favourite in the brew house”.

Island Street Porter (ABV 5.9%), is a hand crafted, sumptuous porter. Its blend of eight malts produce hints of dark chocolate, coffee and black cherry which, combined with British hops, creates an aroma reminiscent of Black Forest gateaux. Sam continues: “ During the height of Salcombe’s boat building era, when Island Street would have been at its busiest, porter was an incredibly popular drink, not least amongst the delivery men after whose job title the beer was named.  Although our porter is very much a modern take on this classic ale, we wanted to celebrate its history too and so we called it Island Street Porter.”

Island Street Porter (5.9%) joins the Salcombe Brewery Co. range which includes the highly popular Seahorse, Salcombe Pale Ale, Lifesaver, Devon Amber, Shingle Bay and Salcombe Gold, as well as seasonal ales Christmas Tide, Rip Tide and Stormwatch.
