What is "porter"?

Porter is a type of beer that originated in London, England in the early 18th century. It is a dark, rich, and full-bodied beer that is typically brewed using a combination of roasted malt, hops, and yeast. The roasted malt gives porter its signature dark color and chocolatey, coffee-like flavor, while the hops provide a balancing bitterness and aroma. Historically, porter was a popular drink among working-class people in London, and was often referred to as "liquid bread" due to its filling and nutritious qualities. Today, porter is enjoyed by beer enthusiasts around the world, and can be found in a variety of styles, including robust porter, Baltic porter, and American porter.
