Instagram, man: Greenport Harbor Triton Vertical


Bierkraft hosted Tuesday Night Tasting with Greenport Harbor Brewing Company, a Greenport-based brewery owned by John Liegey and Richard Vanderburgh, on February 27. The New York City Beer Week event featured three years (2011, 2012, and 2013) of Greenport Harbor Brewing Company’s barleywine, Triton, and an unreleased version containing Brettanomyces bruxellensis. DJ Swanson and Greg Doroski, brewmaster and brewer, discussed flavors, age-related transformations, and brewing notes (the 2013 version, for example, was fermented longer than 2011 and 2012).

Both selected 2013 as their favorite.

Plz Tell Me Why: The newest installment of Triton possessed richer flavors and more complexity. Nice fruitiness.
