Tonight at Octane Coffee, meet the Co-Founder of Peak Organic Brewing Rob Lucente with Kraig Torres of Hop City.
Peak Organic Brewing Company started after buying brewing equipment for a friend. Over the course of that year, the friends incessantly brewed beer. Ultimately, Peak Organic Brewing was born.
Over time, Peak focused on brewing with organic ingredient and environmentally responsible practices. Beers in their current lineup include —
IPA — Amarillo & Simcoe hops — 7.2% ABV Recipe comes from Massachusetts home brewer friend.
Pale Ale — Cascade Hops, caramel malts. Close in bitterness to IPA.
Nut Brown Ale — Chocolate Malts, Caramel Malts. New Zealand Hallertau hops.
Amber Ale — Organic Crystal Malt. Munich Malt
Pomegranate Wheat Ale with Acai — Local wheat and coriander. Pomegranate and Acai (antioxidant rich fruit.)
Espresso Amber Ale — First “Fair Trade Certified” beer in US. Espresso beans in this beer are fairly traded. Hand roasted in Portland, ME. Dark Sumatran blend.
Maple Oat Ale — Peak is in New England, so this brew fits right in. Maine grown oats, from GrandyOats Granola Company. Vermont maple syrup from Butternut Mountain Farms. Copper colored ale, sweet finish.
Not all of the above brews will be featured tonight at Octane. However, this is a cheat sheet to what Peak brews, and gives you an 1 up in the conversation with Rob Lucente.
Tasting is free. Time — 5:30 pm. The beers you do find tasty are available across the street at Hop City.
