Einstök Toasted Porter

Einstök Toasted Porter

Located in the fishing port of Akureyri, Iceland, the brewery sits just 60 miles south of the Arctic Circle. Here, the area is famous for some of the purest water on earth; travelling from rainfall atop the historic Hlíðarfjall Mountain through ancient lava fields to create the perfect foundation for a crisp, refreshing ale. Their most famous brew; The Einstök Icelandic Pale Ale brings together a fusion of American and Bavarian craft with the finest Icelandic water to create the Viking version of the Pale Ale, where robust hoppiness meets smooth malty undertones. They also offer an Icelandic Toasted Porter (with dark toffee and chocolate notes), an Icelandic White Ale, a seasonal Winter Ale and even Arctic Berry Ale. Currently, the beers are only available in Iceland, the UK, New York, California and Florida. As they say however "Fear not, we are working hard to conquer new lands. Drink, conquer, repeat." Get that Viking feel by enjoying it out of our steins.
