New Chocolate Beers for June
Kristi’s EF (Ejection Fraction) Chocolate Porter – 5 Rights Brewing Company
5 Rights Brewing Company is just getting ready to celebrate their 2ndyear of business and will be moving into their new 10 barrel brewery and tap room/restaurant in Lake Stevens, WA later this summer.
R.J Whitlow (Head Brewer) originally brewed this beer for his wife for Valentine’s Day. “We knew we had to brew this delicious beer again for our 2nd Anniversary Celebration as 5 Rights would never have come to be without Kristi’s dedication and inspiration” says R.J. “The term “ejection fraction” refers to the measurement of the percentage of blood leaving the heart each time it beats or contracts, but we cannot truly measure the heart that Kristi brings to our lives as a dedicated nurse, wife and mother to all of our 5 Rights Family. Thanks Cholaca for helping us make an amazing and fitting tribute offering!”
This rich and luscious robust porter features a chocolate forward grain bill as well as Cholaca added after fermentation to create an over-the-top chocolate lover’s craft beer delight.

We have heard many times over that the beer is much better since including the Cholaca,” says owner Dave Vargo.
Be sure to stop in and try this tasty chocolate porter during a hot summer day in Michigan. Life’s short, paddle hard!
