Porter was the first commercially brewed beer. It was named for the train porters who were its original servers and consumers, and became hugely popular in 18th & 19th century Britain. Popularity declined in the 20th century, but Samuel Smith’s Old Brewery, Yorkshire’s oldest, reintroduced authentic porter to the British beer scene in 1979. Since then, Taddy Porter has helped inspire the rebirth of the porter style.
