Magic BeansFIRST BREWED: March 2014
Seems that when most breweries make a coffee beer it’s Espresso Stout or Porter.
We wanted to try something a little different. We brewed a base beer deep amber in colour with natural malt sweetness & delicate fruit character. Instead of adding espresso, we “cold brewed” the coffee beans in the beer.
This gave us some wonderful acidity balanced with delicate fruit character rather than the big roasty flavours many of us are accustomed to tasting in other coffee beers.
The final result was a real tribute to the quality of the beans provided by Bows & Arrows Coffee Roasters in Victoria BC & the creativity of our Head Brewer.
**Magic Beans Batch 2 was made with beans from Anchored Coffee (Novia Scotia) & Cold Brew from our friends at Revolver Coffee in Vancouver.
***Magic Beans Batch 3 (first served January 29th, 2015) was made in collaboration with our friends Elysian Coffee.
****Magic Beans Batch 4 was made with Bows & Arrows Coffee Roasters.(So good we had to do it again)
*****Magic Beans Batch 5 was made with JJ Bean Coffee Roasters.
