Ya’ll go have a beer for me!
Quick. Think of something synonymous with the holidays.
What’d you come up with? Santa Claus? Christmas trees? Ugly sweaters?
Here in Winston-Salem, this time of year is laden with the culture of the Moravians who originally settled our little slice of North Carolina. Which means holidays include Moravian stars, Moravian Lovefeasts . . . and Moravian cookies.
Last year, in a nod to the culture that so richly defines our home city, we borrowed a few ingredients from our favorite Moravian cookie recipe – ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, to name a few – and created a Moravian Porter.
It was introduced on Black Friday — and didn’t last a week.
So this year we made a little more. And bottled it. And got our friends up the street (literally) at Salem Baking to chip in some Moravian cookies to pair with the beer. It will be available only in the Triad.

I grew up Moravian and love seeing this creative contribution to Winston-Salem. Supposedly the Moravians in Salem were master brewers also!! – Frank Stovall
