how is this not in the Winter sampler?

I was over in the Midway yesterday, my old stomping grounds, so I went to Big Top to pick up the Summit Porter. I ended up getting a 12 pack only because it was a better value than the 6 pack ($10.99/12 vs. $7.99/6) and the Winter sampler pack only had Winter Ale, Extra Pale Ale, Extra Special Bitter, and India Pale Ale. Maybe it’s just me but I totally think the Porter should be in there instead of the EPA.

Well, not a big deal that I got a 12-pack since the Porter kicks ass. I’m on number 2 right now, and I’m really enjoying the chocolatey coffee flavors and the sweet finish. Seems like the perfect way to start off what’s gonna be a long winter.

Ok, I'll start with my dirty little secret: the first beer I drank with regularity is Natural Ice, yes, Nattie's ice. I think the reasoning was something like, it's dirt cheap and super alcoholic. Well I've grown up a bit since then, and I actually like the taste of beer. Hence the idea for this site.

  1. Here at Summit we agree that Porter is great for the winter, and we debated about which beers to include in which sampler, but one thing that wasn’t up for debate was the inclusion of EPA in ALL of the samplers. It is obviously a crowd favorite, so we use it as an anchor for the sampler in hopes that people will try some of our other styles. Glad you enjoyed the Porter!
