The Memphis craft brewery will release the “Noble Prized Porter” to celebrate the inaugural Memphis Beer Week (April 21 – 27) and to honor Memphis in May’s Salute to Sweden.
The limited-edition beer was brewed Monday with the “noble” hop Hallertau, as well as lingonberries and vanilla extract.
Only one batch of the beer will be made, with some beer to be sold from Ghost River’s dock and some headed to local bars and restaurants.
Here’s the announcement that was posted on Ghost River’s Facebook page:
We are brewing something extra special at Ghost River today! To celebrate Memphis Beer Week (April 21 – 27, 2013) and to honor Memphis in May’s Salute to Sweden, we are brewing “Noble Prized Porter”. Yes, we meant to spell “Noble” that way. We are using the “noble” hop, Hallertau and avoiding any copyright infringements issues at the same time! We are also adding lingonberries and vanilla extract to the beer to create layers and layers of flavor! Look for the beer around mid-April.
