As the weather beings to cool entering the fall season, the brewers at Stone Brewery are rolling out their new Vanilla Bean Porter, for those who enjoy a creamy dark beer and cozy warm place to drink it. It is brewed with Madagascar vanilla bean which imparts a delicate creaminess and compliments the chocolate & coffee undertones. This is a perfect beer to enjoy while reading a good book by a fireplace or maybe while roasting marshmallows over a campfire. It also pairs really well with some fall foods that we listed for you below. (Bottom of article)
