“Parr’s Porter has hop and dark malt notes, a bit of fruit in the aroma and a dry finish,” writes the brewhouse on Facebook. The 6.55% ABV porter features “deep, dark flavors over a smooth wonderful inside.”
The Duluth brewery calls Parr “a longtime friend,” which is no lie: Parr is a frequent guest on the Fitger’s stage, and in 2006 Parr even released a live album recorded there. According to the Red House press release announcing the new album, however, Parr himself abstains from alcohol after a recent health scare.
Parr’s new album, Stumpjumper, will be released on April 28. Hear “Over the Red Cedar,” a song from the album, below.
