Beer Pick: Boulevard Flora Obscura Dry-Hopped Porter

Source: Atlanta Journal Constitution

At its best, winter in north Georgia brings with it chilly temperatures, sunny days, beautiful sunsets, and sometimes a spectacular full moon.

That kind weather makes me think of porter, a dark, malty, essentially English ale that isn’t as popular as it once was. But American brewers are still doing interesting things with the style, including adding lots of bright American hops.

And with porters on my mind, Boulevard Flora Obscura Dry-Hopped Porter is today’s Beer Pick.
