Gravity Never Fails (ABV 5.8%) from De Ranke Brewery is a hop-assertive Porter made in collaboration with Bob Barrar of 2SP Brewing Company in Pennsylvania.

Fermented with a blend of two Belgian yeast strains, it features an experimental hop called Warneton 7784, named for the Belgian town and postal code where it was grown.

It pours dark brown with a fluffy tan head that leaves good lacing. Fragrance is of dark chocolate, brown bread, vanilla, a touch of smoke, and a hint of licorice. Taste carries the same bittersweet chocolate and toast notes, along with peppery yeast. It has more hop bitterness and a drier finish than a typical Porter. 11.2 oz bottle.

The De Ranke Brewery was founded in 1996 by good friends Nino Bacelle and Guido Devos, hobby brewers who turned a part-time obsession into a successful commercial venture.

At first brewing only on weekends using the equipment and facilities of an existing craft brewery, De Ranke soon established a reputation for producing robust and flavorful ales with a massive hops profile; hops, in their philosophy, are the single most important ingredient in any ale. They embraced traditional brewing methods (without eschewing helpful new technologies) and used only the freshest natural ingredients like real hop flowers instead of cheap hop extracts like many of their larger more commercially driven counterparts.

As a result, De Ranke brews grew steadily in popularity and demand; in the late 2000s, De Ranke was able to relocate to its own brewery in Dottignies in the Hainaut province of Belgium.

Today, De Ranke Brewery exports award winning hop-centric ales to nine different countries including the United States, India, France and Japan.
