WILK Friday BeerBuzz - 30 Nov 2012 Stegmaier Porter w/Leo Orlandini

We’ve had some really great local and national guests on the WILK Friday BeerBuzz…from Hawaii to Wilkes-Barre we’ve welcomed some really fun brewers and sampled some great beers.  Every so often a guest on our show becomes more than just a great guest…but also a friend….and I’m happy to say I consider our guest today a real friend.

It’s been way too long since we welcomed our pal Leo Orlandini into the studio to feature a great Lion Brewery / Stegmaier Beer but today I think we made up for that absence in he beer we choose.  No one knows the history of Lion Brewery and the Stegmaier line of beers like Leo and this beer certainly has a history.

Today we chose to sample what I consider to be the classic Stegmaier beer….Stegmaier Porter.  This beer has real history at the brewery, and while it has changed a bit and even gone on hiatus for periods of time, it always seems to return and it always seems to be a beer people just love.
Stegmaier Porter has a classic American Porter flavor with notes of coffee, chocolate and a real malty backbone.  Steg Porter has clean and pleasing roasted finish and an ABV that makes it easy to enjoy more than one.  It was a real blast talking about the history of Steg Porter with Leo, but even more exciting to hear that Porter does have a future in the Stegmaier line-up.  This is great news and I’m happy we get to report it. 

Of course with the winter season upon us, we had to sample the 2012 version of Stegmaier Winter Warmer.  Dressed in it’s new packaging this beer not only looks great but tastes great as well.  Lots of caramel and toffee flavors, some flavors of dark fruits and a big malty finish…but at 7.8% ABV, keep your eye on this one.

Thank you to Leo Orlandini from Lion Brewery ,Nancy, John & Joe for yet another

fun Friday.
