Port Jeff Brewing Company, a Port Jefferson-based brewery opened in 2011 by Michael Philbrick, celebrates its first year of existence on October 06 (12:00PM).

Birf includes the release of Anniversary Porter (1), a 7.00% ABV porter (the third and final installment from Port Jeff Brewing Company’s inaugural batch of Port Jeff Porter) aged in Heaven Hill Distilleries whiskey barrels for one year.

Anniversary Porter (1) is limited to 233 bottles.


Description of Anniversary Porter (1):

On October 15, 2011 we opened our doors for the first time. That day we offered 100 numbered bottles of our first batch of porter brewed at the brewery. We also took some of the beer from the first batch and tucked it away in two Heaven Hills whiskey barrels. The first barrel aged for 3 months until we emptied, bottled, and released it on December 10, 2011. The second barrel waited patiently for a full year during which the beer style won the bronze medal at the US Beer Open Championship. The last installment and our anniversary highlight made its way into 233 bottles. This one is yours! Regardless of whether you drink it, age it, or hold onto it, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your continued support. Here’s to many more barrels and many more beers.
