Arches Brewing Debuts Five Week Sail Baltic Porter Cans

Arches Brewing Debuts Five Week Sail Baltic Porter Cans

Arches Brewing in Hapeville, Georgia has announced the release of a new limited-edition beer.

Five Week Sail is available now in six-packs from the brewery. This Baltic Porter that clocks in at 8.4 percent ABV packs a wallop and features elements of roast, caramel and chocolate.

The full release from the brewery is below.


We are thrilled to release our Baltic porter, Five Week Sail, into cans for the first time. This unique style combines the bold flavor of an English Porter and richness of a Russian Imperial Stout. It is the only porter that is a lager, as cold fermentation was necessary to preserve it during the long voyage across the Baltic Sea. This strong style boasts a roasty, caramel profile accompanied by mild chocolate undertones. It pairs very well with powerful meats, particularly game, and other hearty Nordic cuisines.

A limited number of six-packs will be available in the Tasting Room beginning Friday, December 28th, at 4:00pm -- just in time for New Year's Eve!
