Today we are drinking and reviewing the Black Gold Porter out of the Appalachian Mountain Brewery of Boone – a porter “with a midnight hue that is complemented by chocolate and coffee aromas with a creamy head and smooth finish.” They love beer at Appalachian Mountain – not only do they love to drink it, they also love to talk and teach beer. Explaining the brewing process and their humble opinions about the best and worst hops are standard conversations for these guys! Beyond beer, they believe in living healthy and local lifestyles. From growing their own food in the garden and being energy-efficiency minded, they try to stay local. These folks have a commitment to their community and it shows!
