Elemental is our most consistently awarded beer, it has won gold medals in Australia and New Zealand and is a firm favourite of dark beer fanatics the world over.
Originally the beer of choice for workers in London’s produce markets, the beer was a mixture of the previous nights slops that the "porters" would drink when they clocked off at dawn. Porter is also Andy Deuchars, our Chief Brewers, all time favourite beer style. Brewed in the modern ‘robust’ style more towards the American than the Traditional British style, Elemental Porter is a rich, balanced, full bodied brew with plenty of dry, dark chocolate and roasty malt flavours which gradually give way to a cleansing hop-driven finish.
Not intuitively thought of as as a food beer it is a surprisingly effective accompaniment for:
- Dark chocolate
- Coffee or berry-based desserts
- Blue cheese
- Barbecued meats
