Catawba Brewing Co. (Morganton, North Carolina) has announced that it will officially begin the limited release of Deep State Baltic Porter on Friday, November 3.
Originally brewed as Catawba Brewing’s Passport Beer #32, Deep State was developed as a closed-door experiment focused on the traditional Baltic Porter. This offering stays true to style by employing bottom fermentation with lager yeast, but the brewery did add its own tweak by having the beer come in on the “more sessionable end of the ABV range for the style at 7.2 percent.” Those lucky enough to get their hands on Deep State will experience a “dangerously drinkable dark lager . . . layered with rich malt, toffee, dark fruits, and a hint of roast.”
Deep State Baltic Porter launches on November 3 and will be available as long as supplies last. You can expect to find this Limited Release offering at select beer establishments located in Alabama, North Carolina and throughout the rest of Catawba Brewing Co.’s 5-state distribution footprint. Prost!
