Scratch #19-2009 is a do-over. You know, you get it right, or just about right, the first time so you take another stab at it to get it even better. First, a little background, Scratch #15 was the fastest selling Scratch Beer to date; it sold out in less than 48 hours. The Scratch series has always been about experimentation, so consider this further research into our love affair with coffee and beer.

Scratch #19 has deep roots in Scratch #15 with some new wrinkles. The malted barley releases chocolate, roasted and caramel flavors that blend with the citrus tastes of Chinook and Cluster hops.

Once again, we are working with St. Thomas Roasters of Linglestown to create a blend of espresso beans. We've added Kenyan beans to the mix because of a strong citrus flavor that compliments the hops. The beans are combined with whole flower hops in the hopback, and the hot wort passes through the vessel on the way to fermentation giving Scratch #19 a lush coffee espresso nose and hints of coffee flavor.
