The Peralta Adobe located in San Pedro Square is the namesake of this porter. Our porter has wonderful caramel characteristics as well as coffee and chocolate notes. Available annually from fall through winter.
Before software and silicon took over, the Santa Clara Valley was home to thousands of acres of rich farmland and orchards, where proud farmers worked tirelessly to supply the world with fresh, delicious produce. At Santa Clara Valley Brewing we pay homage to this industrious past by providing our friends and neighbors with a selection of fine handcrafted beers created with the highest quality ingredients. We hope you enjoy drinking our beers as much as we enjoy brewing them.
The American porter is a juiced up version of the English porter - more of everything basically. They range from very sessionable to big barrel-aged beers. Lots of aroma and flavor of smoke, roast, cocoa-like sweetness and with all the fullness of the hops and dark malts. Drier and more bitter than a stout, but less creamy and rich.
