  • Description

At the end of the 19th century a beer was brewed especially for the dockyard workers of the bustling Port of London. Docklands Porter was named after these strong men, who unloaded the cargoes of sailing ships and schooners berthed at the many wharves along the Thames.

Porter had a uniquely rich and satisfying flavour which quenched the thirst of dockers after long shifts loading and unloading vessels from around the world. You can now recapture the unique flavour of traditional Victorian Porters – a light hop character and full malt flavour under lie a rich colour, possible by the subtle use of the best roasted malts.

Here's the history lesson, the great Victorian docks were home to thousands of dock workers who would toil away on long shifts. Hard work and long hours. At the end of a shift they needed liquid and food, there was the breweries supplying this dark thirst quenching beer. This meant they could get food and drink at the same time. Beer was food as well as drink!!

Now we know better, you need a bag of crisps of if you want some food, but the beer is still called porter after the porters stevedores and dockworkers who drank it by the gallon!
