Taylor House creates Super Bowl beer

Blend of Biery’s Porter, Blocker’s coffee available Feb. 2

Taylor House Brewing Company has a plan in the works for Feb. 2, the day before the big game.

“Most people watch the Super Bowl at house parties,” said owner Annette Pompa. “And we will be closed by the time it starts. So, we came up with this.”

Master brewer Mike Lessa is brewing one keg of a special beer in honor of the game — Super Bowl Biery’s Porter.

“It’s one keg, and then it’s gone,” he said.

So get to the Taylor establishment, 76 Lehigh St., Saturday.

The unique concoction is brewed special for dark beer lovers.

It took a little coordination. Taste-testers chose a coffee from the specialty list at Blocker’s Coffeehouse, representing seven regions and various blends. This coffee will be mixed into Taylor House Brewing Company’s special Biery’s Porter to enhance the flavor.

The brewing company will introduce a special craft beer at the beginning of every season.
