(LONGMONT, CO) – In a tribute to those fearless experienced wildland firefighters who give themselves to protect our natural heritage, our homes and our lives here in Colorado and across the nation, Left Hand Brewing Company will release later this month a limited edition smoked imperial porter called Smokejumper.

About Smokejumper Smoked Imperial Porter

As the "Official Beer of the National Smokejumper Association", this truly hand-crafted smoked imperial porter is made with hot and cold-smoked barley malt using a combination of several hardwoods.

Roasty black in color, the long-lingering smokiness wraps around flavors of sweet molasses, toasted malt and an earthy hoppiness. The beer is full-bodied, black with garnet undertones in color, and 9.2% alcohol by volume.

It will be available in 750 milliliter silk-screened Belgian beer bottles and kegs in Colorado, Arizona, Georgia, Indiana, Illinois, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Ohio, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

The National Smokejumper Association, through a cadre of volunteers and partnerships, is dedicated to preserving the history and lore of smokejumping, maintaining and restoring our nation’s forest and grassland resources, and responding to special needs of smokejumpers and their families.
