Durty, a “mud season hoppy brown ale” is the newest beer to Smuttynose’s seasonal line up of beers and has recently hit the market after receiving rave reviews as part of Smuttynose’s Short Batch series.

In this video we taste the beer, discuss the story behind the beer and its packaging, and then pair it with cheddar cheese and dark chocolate.
