Pluff Mud Porter

Craft Beer & Brewing Magazine - - Breakout Brewer: Holy City Brewing -

pluff mud (noun)—a mix­ture of dirt and water indige­nous to the marshes of the South Carolina Low Coun­try, with a dis­tinct odor that’s en­dear­ing to lo­cals but off-putting to oth­ers. Charleston, South Carolina’s Holy City Brew­ing’s sec­ond flag­ship beer was an ef­fort to bring the Amer­i­can porter style to the Charleston mar­ket proper, while also mak­ing a beer that stays ap­peal­ing as the mer­cury rises. Pluff Mud Porter presents (and smells) like a clas­sic porter, with sub­tle choco­late notes and a silky fin­ish, but the medium body and tame ABV keep it re­fresh­ing at all times.
