Southern Tier Cold Press Coffee Pumking, a new variant of one of the most well-known pumpkin beers, releases soon.
The mere mention of Pumking will typically get a strong “love it” or “hate it” reaction. Either way, it’s hard to doubt this pumpkin beer has made quite an impression on the beer scene.
Southern Tier Cold Press Coffee Pumking is created in a few steps. First, the brewery mashed in the grains at a higher temperature in order to leave a little residual sweetness to pair better with the coffee flavor.
Once fermentation was completed the beer was cold crashed to 32 degrees, and 150 pounds of cold pressed coffee from local roaster Stedman’s was added. Incidentally, the brewery pressed the coffee themselves.
In the end, the coffee adds nutty and cocoa flavors to Pumking’s strong pumpkin and pie crust flavors. Due to the infusion, this beer does have traces of caffeine.
Southern Tier Cold Press Coffee Pumking is a limited, draft only offering.
