Vanilla Porter was created by Dry Dock co-owner, Kevin DeLange, and first brewed in 2006 on a 7 barrel brewhouse in the original 800 sq ft tasting room and brewery. A classic English-style brown porter with more than a quarter pound of Madagascar vanilla beans added per barrel. It was an immediate hit with patrons. After winning a Gold Medal at the Colorado State Fair, it was one of the first home fleet beers made available year around. Due to its continued popularity, Vanilla Porter was chosen to be added to Dry Dock Brewing’s canned beer line-up in December 2014 and is now available in 22 oz. bombers, 6-pack cans and on draft in select bars and resteraunts throughout Colorado.
