The Brewery: Asheville Brewing Company, with three locations in Asheville, North Carolina

The Beer: Ninja Porter

Tasting Notes: This 2014 World Beer Cup winner in the Brown Porter category is a beer that, as its name hints, is a sneakily brilliant beer. It has a pleasantly roast-y body, but is also lightly hopped, surprisingly easy to down and, thanks to just 5 percent ABV, one to drink in twos.
