This post could very well be a story: The tale of two beers closely linked in origin, born in the pubs of London, weaving a path through the industrial revolution, weathering the inter-war years and emerging as unique and diverse styles upon the wave of the craft-beer revolution. While the history behind the origins of porter and stout is certainly intriguing, it is not my mission (nor is it within the reasonable scope of this post) to thoroughly investigate the past of these two beers. Rather, I am interested in the practical differences between stout and porter; differences that you (the beer consuming public) should know the next time you enter a store or bar.
