Hope you didn’t forget about Spoetzl Brewery. Those fine folks have something new for you. Meet Shiner Cold Brew Coffee Ale.
Spoetzl didn’t have to go far from his coffee meets beer collaboration. Chameleon Cold Brew, now sold nationally, is just up the road. Chameleon hand picked coffee beans that pair well with the beer’s roasty dark malt and Mt. Hood hops.
By now you’ve had cold brew coffee. Even coffee served nitro taps. Gradually emerging in the coffee scene is coffee that features the same key ingredient in brewing – hops. Lightly hopped cold brew coffee has become popular over the past year or so.
in our mind, Shiner Cold Brew Coffee Ale follows that same path. It drinks like a beer, as well as a hopped cold brew. Minus the astringency and bitterness that either can bring to your palate on their own. A clean finishing, lager-like coffee beer. Except it’s an ale..
Beer brewing is nothing new to Spoetzel. This release celebrates their 108th birthday. Shiner Cold Brew Coffee Ale can be found now in 12 ounce bottles, cans, 24 ounce bottles, and draft for a limited time.
