This is the last Cooperstown Brewing post for me! I went to Cooperstown and some surrounding areas 3 months ago, and now I’ve finally posted all the baseball beers I drank. Most were Cooperstown Brewing Company beers – this is the 7th and last of theirs. I posted about the brewery itself about back when I was there.
Brewery: Cooperstown Brewing in Milford, NY
Beer: Bench Warmer Porter
Description: “A full-bodied, rich smooth porter using 4% chocolate malt, subtle floral, herbal character.”
It pours a dark color as you’d expect from a porter, with hints of chocolate and smoke. Other than their Induction Ale, this is my favorite beer of theirs.
Medium: I had it on tap, and bought a few bottles. Of course you could buy a pint, too.
How it’s related to baseball: All of CBC’s beers are baseball themed; they’re built around the idea that a brewery around Cooperstown should focus on the baseball part of the town. This beer is focusing on the depth of a team – the guys on the bench. I guess they would be fine drinking a slightly heavier beer since they’re not going to get into the game :)!
