In this blog, we will talk about one of beers from one of my favorite brewpubs in the Chicagoland area. I am talking about the Ram Brewery Total Disorder Porter. This brewery was founded in 1971. It is also a very award winning brewery. Let us get back to some of the history of this brewery.
This came from their website (www.theram.com)
The Ram is a private, independent, family-owned and operated restaurant business. We were born on February 26, 1971 when our founders took their entrepreneurial spirit and experiences they received making pizza and serving beer at Shakey’s Pizza Parlor to open their own restaurant. That first restaurant was called the Ram Pub, which was a “Deluxe Tavern” that served hot food, including cook-your-own burgers and steaks, along with beer and wine.
This is a short point of their history. It is kind of neat to see where this resturant and brwery. They have multiple location through out the USA. I bet there is one by you. I wrote a blog on the Wheeling, IL Ram.
Here is a descripation from their website (www.theram.com) about their Porter:
Rich and smooth, our award-winning brown porter features the flavor of chocolate and caramel.
This beer has won an award.

The porter in the glass has a dark brown to black look to it. Nice chocolate and roasted malt smell in the porter. When drinking the beer, you will get a light carbonation taste along with slight burned malts, chocolate, and hints of toffee. This porter is in the class of the English Porter world. It is very drinkable and heavy enough to make the porter drinkers happy. You can drink this beer all year long. Even in the hottest Chicago days and the coldest winters, it is a perfect drinkable beer.

In closing, this beer is one of my favorite porter in the market. I love this beer along with most of their other beers that they brew. Along with great beer, their food is off the charts. You will get the whole Craft Beer Drinker wet dream. Great food and good Craft Beer is under one brewery called The Ram. Go to their website and see where a location is near you. Let me know what you think. Enjoy it! Drink it! Metal it! \m/
