Two new beers today

Ok, so I know how some of you feel about putting non-beery things in beer, and I get it. I used to be pretty dogmatic on the subject, more in favor of the Reinheitsgebot than southern Belgian farmers. Still, there is plenty of ground to be broken in the face of staunch tradition, and well, sometimes a brewer gets bored. At any rate, one of the first coffee beers I appreciated was Stone’s Dayman coffee IPA. It surprised me with fruitier coffee notes, and hops that made sense with my favorite morning, noon and evening beverage. It was weirdly in balance. Our friends over at Broadcast Coffee brought us a few single origin, light roast coffees to play with, and we kicked out a surprising marriage of flavors, bringing uppers and downers together in a boozy concoction that will leave you wondering why it works so well. Columbia las Margaritas coffee is a delicate and floral bean, and it sits perfectly with Cascade and Centennial hops in a medium bodied, boozy beer (8.5%) we’re affectionately calling Waffle Dust.

Secondly, the Spring Pale is back on tap, with a small adjustment. We’ve again used a light grain bill and Belma and Citra hops to make a satisfyingly hoppy pale with all that barely ripe strawberry and tropical citrus vibe. This time, however, we used a clean yeast strain that moves aside so the hops can talk. It’s 5.8% and super refreshing. See you soon!
