HAD10: Porter

Today’s episode is all about porters. It’s time to talk about those guys who help you carry stuff and check you in on train rides. We’ll talk about how they get hired, how they. . . wait, I’m being handed a note. . .  Sorry, wrong sort of porter. Today is all about the dark beer. That makes more sense, and it’s much tastier. We’ll talk all things Porter today: tastes, history, and styles. It’s our second walk on the dark side, and it’s so good. So come in, and have a drink!
