The end of summer is nigh. While the conclusion of Milwaukee’s best season is a sad occasion, it’s not all bad. The Packers are back, the Brewers are poised to make a playoff run, and another Bucks season is on the way. Events like Beet Street, Doomsday, and Abby Jeanne’s Cosmic Weekend will keep the festival fun going deep into October. It’s kind of pretty when leaves change color, right? Best yet, autumn’s arrival means our beer is coming back!

Since 2016, Milwaukee Record and Company Brewing have joined forces to make a delicious spiced porter called “Milwaukee Record Re-Porter.” For the uninformed, Re-Porter is Company’s Night Rye’d Porter that has been infused with cinnamon, cacao nibs, medium roast coffee, vanilla bean, and three types of chiles.

The first two runs of the seasonal brew were well-received by beer enthusiasts, and helped raise thousands of dollars for local charities. Not only is Re-Porter coming back for a third year, it’s also going to be available in cans this time around. Yesterday, the beer was put into some gorgeous Editor Bear cans that Andy Tyra designed for us.

Cans are currently available at Company Brewing. Six packs cost $12, with a portion of proceeds benefiting Milwaukee Women’s Center. In early October, Re-Porter will hit shelves and tap lines throughout Milwaukee (and beyond), with $1 from each beer sold to be donated to Milwaukee Women’s Center as well. Here are some places you’ll be able to pick it up before the end of October (locations and availability to be updated):
