It’s getting cold out there, which means Señorita Horchata Imperial Porter from Elevation Beer Co. is back for the season! Last winter this beer made its debut in cans, and it is one again available in 6-packs (and on draft) across the brewery’s distribution footprint in Colorado and Wyoming. Señorita has long been one of my favorite Colorado beers, and I always get excited about its return when the weather turns cool.
When I first started drinking craft beer, porters were my go-to, and I then took a liking to stouts. So an Imperial Porter is just my style! I don’t see a whole lot of porters these days—especially not imperial porters, especially not brewed with cinnamon and vanilla bean (!), so I make sure to grab some Señorita when it is released. It’s such a well balanced beer, and I like that it has a relatively high ABV (I’ve seen it listed between 8-8.5%, so I’m not sure of the exact percentage). I thoroughly enjoy the combination of flavors in this beer; in addition to drinking it, I plan to bake with it as well. It would be the perfect ingredient for a batch of beer brownies!
Pick up a 6-pack at your local liquor store today, and/or join Elevation Beer Co. for Cinco Días Antes del Día de los Muertos celebration at their tasting room on Friday, October 26! There will be a Senorita look-alike contest (prizes for best costumes), Sugar Skull Painting, and $1.00 tacos from Sonny’s Food Truck & Moments to Memories Catering. Cheers!
