Kensington Home Grown Porter
“HOME GROWN is an experiment in sourcing hyper-local ingredients”, notes KBCo founder Brock Shepherd. “We used fresh Hallertauer hops grown in Kensington Market. We planted these hop vines with our own hands over a period of three years, it doesn’t get much more local than that”. An unfiltered, medium bodied Porter brewed to 5.7% ABV with 30 IBUs, Home Grown Porter is available on draught only at Snakes and Lagers, Valdez, Rose and Sons, Bar Volo, Only Cafe, Wvrst, Bar Hop and others across Toronto.
Black or chocolate malt gives the porter its dark brown color. Porters are well hopped and heavily malted. This is a medium-bodied beer. Porters can be sweet. Hoppiness can range from bitter to mild. Porters are often confused with stouts.
