Guess what happens when a master brewer joins forces with a premier specialty coffee roaster?
The F.X. Matt Brewing Co., brewer of Saranac’s line of craft beers, just introduced a new style, Cold Brew Coffee Lager for June, 2016. This style was inspired by the recent trend in cold brew coffee, which is brewed cold (as opposed to being brewed hot and then iced).
Cold brew coffee is less acidic than normal coffee: lower acidity coffee combined with lower acidity beer (lager) creates an easy-drinking flavor profile, allowing you to enjoy more than one. Not only does the cold brew difference show up in the flavor, but the beer also has a surprising color – it looks like your average amber lager.
Saranac Cold Brew Coffee Lager is 5.2% alcohol by volume and is lower in IBUs, 20. It’s brewed with Pilsner, Vienna, Munich and Caramunich malts plus Magnum, Hallertau Mittelfruh hops. Medium in color and crisp, full in mouthfeel, pairing well with BBQ, roasted or smoked meats and chocolate.
This brand new, one-out brew is so coveted and limited, The Bier Box snagged the last keg in our area and added to our Tap List … just for you!
