WASATCH BREWERY WELCOMES ITS NEW SISTER WIFE AND BOTTLES POLYGAMY NITRO PORTER

Published: 03/10/2015
Salt Lake City – (March 10, 2015) – Wasatch Brewery has entered the bottled nitro craft beer category with its new release of Polygamy Nitro Porter, making it the second brewery in the country to finesse these tiny bubbles into a bottle. This nitrogenated Porter is six percent ABV, soft and creamy.

Bottled nitrogenated beers require extensive research and development. “Our new Polygamy Nitro Porter has been a tremendously exciting project for all of us at the brewery,” Wasatch founder Greg Schirf says. “We spent more than a year testing and retesting the technology of injecting nitrogen into our Polygamy Porter, resulting in my favorite beer experience.”

To date there are less than a handful of breweries successfully packaging nitrogenated craft beers.

“Getting nitrogen to pour properly in a bottle is about a hundred times more challenging than nitrogenating a keg.” Schirf said. “I could not be prouder of our guys putting their cumulative brewery experience of more than a hundred years together and pulling off a game-changing achievement in the craft brewing industry. You really have to try it to fully appreciate the love.”

The Wasatch Polygamy Nitro Porter aroma comes off as cocoa in the nose from the use of chocolate malt. The silky smooth texture and mouthfeel is provided by fine nitrogen bubbles.

To enjoy the ultimate experience of nitro beers, it requires an aggressive approach. “Pour it harder into your favorite glass and enjoy watching a bazillion little nitrogen bubbles make their way to the top of the glass,” brewmaster Dan Burick says. “Watch the beautiful dark mahogany fluid that Polygamy Porter is cascading through the rising bubbles. This necessary foreplay creates a dense head of foam that invites you to enjoy a silky smooth Porter.”

Wasatch Brewery has been bottling a four percent session Polygamy Porter since 2001. Recognized at World Beer Cup and winning gold and silver awards in the session category. The name and edgy taglines – Take some home to the wives! Why have just one? I’ve tried polygamy. – have grabbed the attention of craft beer drinkers over the years. It is not difficult to see it was time to add to the fun. #pourithard
