Vienna Coffee Beer description:

A Style-Defying Coffee Beer Brewed with Our Friends at Stumptown Coffee
A few years ago, we set out to create a new kind of coffee beer–instead of a stout or porter with coffee, we wanted to create a light colored, malt-forward, rich base beer which would dovetail into the nutty, chocolatey, and fruity flavors of a lightly roasted coffee.

Our Vienna Coffee Beer is the delicious result of this effort, achieved after numerous trial batches. We use three of our favorite ‘character malts’ — sweet Vienna, toasty Melanoidin and Hazelnut-like CaraMunich — Along with a rich base of English Golden Promise to create a base beer that doesn’t fit into any style category, but it matches perfectly with the lightly roasted cold brew provided to us with our friends at Stumptown Coffee. A cool fermentation and soft water profile allow the malt and coffee flavors to shine; we hope that you find this coffee beer to be as inventive and refreshing as we do. Cheers!

6.3% ABV
30 IBU
Malts: Two-Row, Golden Promise, Vienna, Malanoidin, Caramunich
Hops: Hallertau Blanc
