A Michigan-made craft beer continues to score high reviews for its original, hefty, chocolatey, smoky porter. The key ingredient? Pig parts.
Proving once again there are 185 uses for pigs, Right Brain Brewery’s seasonal Mangalitsa Pig Porter may be the strangest craft brew made in Michigan.
Right Brain Brewery’s description of the Pig Porter: “Real smoked pig heads give it the smokey flavor. There is no smoked malt in this recipe. The beer that put Right Brain on the map. A rich and chocolaty porter brewed with real smoked pig heads and bones. Not for vegetarians! You simply have to experience this beer and describe it to your friends.”
Each spring Right Brain releases the porter seasonally – celebrating at the brewery with a pig roast.
‘The Ultimate Bacon Beer’ won 2011 Gold Medal Winner for Best Experimental Beer at the Great American Beer Festival.
