“The Daily Drink” brings you a must-try libation from our booze columnist Zach Geballe.
It’s apparently been a beer-heavy week for me here on the Daily Drink, but sometimes a rich, chocolate-y, porter is just what I want at the end of the day. Enter Stoup Brewing’s Porter, which ticks all the boxes for me: rich and malty, tons of chocolate and coffee notes, and at 6.5% ABV it’s just strong enough to put me to bed without making me regret it in the morning. This one at the Hilltop Ale House was a fitting nightcap.
Zach Geballe does a lot of drinking. When he’s not working at The Dahlia Lounge or for his business Vine Trainings, he’s studying for the Court of Master Sommeliers Exam. His weekly column here at Seattle Weekly, The Bar Code, endeavors to inspire, educate and sometimes poke fun at all things beer, wine and spirits related.
