Co-op Brew Corner: Kulshan Cold Brew Porter

Wake up this Spring with Kulshan Brewing’s newest seasonal ale: Coffee Porter – local beer made with local cold brew coffee. This ale has a lighter body of malts than many porters on the market. Its subtle hop characteristics compliment the rich aromatics and roasted flavors of Woods Coffee Cold Brew. Look for this new release in our Co-op Brew Corner and beer cooler.

Kulshan Brewing ~ Bellingham, WA ~ 6.5 % alcohol by volume/ 36 IBU ~ $9.99 per 6 pk; $2.49 per 12 oz.  Pair this smooth drinking ale with the flavors of balsamic glazed grilled seasonal vegetable skewers or CURED smoked sausages.

Cold brew coffee is brewed slower than traditional hot-brewed coffee, using room temperature or cold water for up to 24 hours. The cold water lends the coffee with a mellower, more rounded flavor. Cold brews are often full bodied, with a lower acidity than traditional brew. Once the coffee is steeped it makes a very strong coffee concentrate that is cut by adding water to about a 50/50 ratio.

Enjoy Kulshan’s Coffee Porter while supplies last!
