Bert Grant’s Perfect Porter…the name says it all. This has to be one of the best porters we have tasted for quite some time. It is dark-brown, almost black in color, with a wonderful dark tan head. Look for lots of chocolate and caramel in this porter. You will notice an aroma of dark caramel and chocolate malts. Expect even more of this in the flavor. After taking your first sip, you will experience a “creamy” mouthful of chocolate malts along with a rich, dark caramel flavor. A perfect accompaniment with steak or pork chops.
The Yakima Brewing Company, located in Yakima, Washington, first started brewing back in 1982. This gives them distinction as being the first brewpub in the country. They originally opened the brewery in the old Yakima Opera house, but as their operations grew, they eventually moved across the street into the old train station. Scotsman, Bert Grant, was the founder of the brewery and a true pioneer in the microbrew industry. In August of 2001, Bert passed away.

After Bert’s passing, Darren Waytuck became the new Brewmaster. Darren started with the Yakima Brewing Company in 1984 as Bert’s apprentice. Throughout the years, he has worked his way up from keg cleaner to Head Brewer, and now Brewmaster. Yakima brews nine different styles of beers – five signature brands and four seasonals. The five signature brews include Bert Grant’s Scottish-Style Ale, Bert Grant’s Hefeweizen, Bert Grant’s India Pale Ale (IPA), Bert Grant’s Perfect Porter, and Bert Grant’s Imperial Stout. The four seasonal brews include Anvil Head Amber Ale, Lazy Days Ale, Bert Grant’s Fresh Hop Ale, and Deep Powder Winter Ale.
