Tap Handle #313: Flyers - Pacemaker Porter

Amazingly I obtained this aviation tap right after the Flying Bison tap featured in the previous post. Like the Flying Bison, this tap is very rare - I haven't seen another.

Flyers Restaurant and Brewery was founded in Oak Harbor, Whidbey Island, Washington, in 2005 by Tony Savoy, Jason Tritt, and his parents Rosa and Greg Tritt. Savoy had over 10 years of brewery experience, with five years at the Snipes Mountain Brewing Co. in Sunnyside, Wash., where he garnered brewing awards. For Flyers, he created 2 varieties that were initially contract brewed through Druid's Brewing. In 2008 Flyers moved into their own building, and opened after 7 months of renovations. They delay allowed them to install the brewery, which was originally scheduled to be added a year after the restaurant opened. Three varieties of beer debuted for the opening, and Flyers currently brews 6 year-round varieties, with 4 seasonals and 2 new brews coming soon. They also did some contract brewing with Skagit River ( I don't know if this is still the case). The brewery is aviation-themed due to the nearby Whidbey Naval Air Station.

Pacemaker Porter is a dark, full bodied porter that has notes of roasted barley, coffee and bitter sweet chocolate, that was one of the debut beers and has become Flyers' flagship beer. Weighted average on is 3.45 out of 5.
