Day 17 brings us back to Raleigh with Coffee Hidden Pipe Porter (6.5% ABV / 34 IBU) from Raleigh Brewing Company. This is an excellent cold day beer. Between the early snow this year and constant rain you may not find a better local beer for the weather. Santa Yoda approved.

Robust and bold, this ale is brewed with locally roasted coffee from Oak City Roasters, resulting in flavors of cocoa, creamed coffee, espresso, molasses, and dark fruit; a perfect everyday sipper for those colder evenings with friends.
