Burnt Timber Brewing will pour “V for Victory Porter” at a special tasting event on Saturday, Oct. 20, from noon to 4 p.m., at the Wright Museum of World War II in Wolfeboro. The beer was made especially for the occasion, based on a recipe from Whitbread Brewery in London for a porter they made in 1940 while the brewery was under aerial attack by the Germans. Proceeds from the event will help support the museum. The special porter is also on tap at the Burnt Timber Tavern on nearby Lehner Street. A portion of the proceeds from “V for Victory Porter” sales at the Tavern will also benefit the Wright Museum. The event will be open to all adults (21+) who purchase regular admission to the Wright Museum on that day and will include one complimentary tasting of beer with additional 12 ounce pours available for purchase, plus complimentary barbecue pork ribs and homemade mac and cheese, courtesy of Mill Street Meat Market and Jacob Ivester, Personal Chef.
