Dark Inception Imperial Porter was contributed by Marcus Baskerville of San Antonio’s Weathered Souls Brewing Co., and the leading force behind the Black Is Beautiful collaborative brewing project. This recipe was inspired by 2013 AHA Homebrewer of the Year Annie Johnson. Seeing an African American woman win Homebrewer of the Year provided Marcus with a bright hope for his future in homebrewing and inspired his love of brewing big dark beers.
Dark Inception Imperial Porter is a thick-bodied, flavorful beer that features additions of raspberry, cacao, and vanilla, and is bursting with notes of toffee, caramel, coffee, chocolate, malt, liqueur, and fruit. It’s a perfect pairing with rich desserts or as a standalone finale for your evening.

About AHA Big Brew:
In 1988, May 7 was announced before Congress as National Homebrew Day. The American Homebrewers Association (AHA) created Big Brew as an annual event to celebrate homebrewing around the world. Now in its 25th year, the event serves as an opportunity for new and expert-level homebrewers to get together in their shared hobby. Held on the first Saturday in May, Big Brew Day is an opportunity to fire up the burners and raise a glass to homebrewing. In 2020, the AHA estimated that over 4,600 people homebrewed in honor of Big Brew in over 60 countries, and in all US states.
