“We decided to try something that wasn’t the typical coffee beer,” said our Head of Barrel Aging and Special Projects, Charlie Condon. “We felt the Dubbel would be a great platform for the coffee Tamas (Owner of Dragonfly Coffee Roasters) selected.”

The particular Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee utilized in this beer shows profound tones of blueberry, fragrant lily & musk in the aroma and cup with a light footed yet lively tangerine-like acidity and a well rounded, gently drying cacao-nib like finish.

According to Charlie, they decided to use Orbit hops, which are a southern hemisphere blend of hop varietals that he describes as having blueberry notes.

Both the coffee and beer come together to create a sweet aroma somewhere between cotton candy and plums, balanced against a subtle earthiness.

This beer is sure to please, and change any preconception you may have of what a “coffee beer” is supposed to be.

Join us Thursday, April 30 at our Lee Hill tap room for the release starting at 5 pm!
