    They must not brew Porter in Tampa. I wonder why? I'm more of a lager lover but DH is into the Porter.

    True story: on our first visit to Schuylkill County as a couple in 1997, he was boggled by the whole distributor/six pack store/State Store system -- and he's from Oklahoma. We took a brewery tour with tasting at the end (if you ever get a chance, do it, and wear closed toe shoes), and the Porter was love at first sip.

    We stopped by the distributor on the way home for a case, and as he was ringing it up, the proprietor commented in a lush coalcracker accent, "Oh, yah. Da Porter. It's just like eating a loof a bread, heyna."

    It stuck ... to this day, "Oh, yah. It's just like eating a loof a Bread" is our standard dark beer toast ;)
