Smash

A Single Malt and Single Hop pale ale.

This brew blends the old and the new. Hunter malt, a historic pale malt traditionally used in Guinness, has not been commercially
cultivate since the 1950's.

Minch Malting company, in collaboration with the Irish department of agriculture have initiated a scheme to resurrect bygone Irish varieties of Barley. Hunter is one of the first verities to be made available to brewers and we
here at the Porterhouse are delighted to be one of the first to brew with this barley in over half a century.

The hop selection for this beer is a thoroughly modern affair. Hallertau Blanc was
released to the world in 2012. Established on the Hüll farm in the German Hallertau
region, Hallertau Blanc’s flavor profile is fruity, with wine-like qualities of gooseberry
and grass, similar to that of Sauvignon Blanc. It also features a complex aroma
profile with notes grapes, grapefruit and lemongrass.

A blend of old Irish grain and new European hops are sure to satisfy in this crisp
Pale Ale.
