From around the corner to the other side of the state our next stop isn’t in Colorado but rather Brevard. This is a solid beer – maybe not my favorite Coffee Porter but one I definitely like and would drink again in a heartbeat. It has just enough bite with a great coffee flavor.
Brewed with a sizable malt bill that includes “seven varieties . . . led by CaraAroma”, Hotbox Coffee Porter starts life as a “hugely malty, medium-bodied porter” that offers notes of “chocolate, fig, plum, espresso, burnt sugar, caramel, and marshmallow.”
As a born-again coffee snob, I now find myself unable to start my day with subpar joe. But as a full-time writer and new dad, I no longer have the 20 minutes to spare for weighing, grinding, heating, cleaning, and hand-pouring every single dinky cup.
The first time I tried Hotbox was at Organic Sandwich shop which has super fresh & delicious ingredients. I had the cold brew and it is NEXT LEVEL! You seriously have to try it. I learned a lot more about it when me and my boyfriend and our good friends Josh & Trysh went on a tour of their roastery!
Hotbox Roasters introduces its latest caffeinated creation, Nitro Cold Brew. Hotbox Roasters’ Nitro Cold Brew is a high-octane dose of 420 mg of caffeine in an infinitely recyclable 12 fl. oz. can.
Oskar Blues makes one of my favorite big beers in their massively thick Ten Fiddy. That’s a big imperial stout that is decadently — almost unbelievably — smooth. Well, leave it up to the Colorado brewery to accomplish the same level of smoothness with a much smaller brew.
Longmont, Colo.-based Oskar Blues shocked and in some cases appalled the craft beer establishment some 13 years ago when it introduced craft beer in cans. Of course, the moment was a great victory for people who enjoy alternatives to Miller or Anheuser-Busch swill in glass-free locations such as rivers, state parks or municipal softball diamonds.
Hotbox Roasters has teamed up with Oskar Blues Brewery to bring a new meaning to the term “canned beans.” Coffee roasting company Hotbox has followed in the footsteps of Oskar Blues’ canned beer creation, resulting in java in a jar.
