Fulton Beer - War & Peace Returns 1/19

19 January 2017

imageFrom Fulton Beer:

At Fulton, coffee and beer are our life coaches. Coffee gets us started every morning with a rousing "Go get 'em! We can do this." A few hours later, after the day has gone off the rails, beer is there to reassure us. "You'll get them tomorrow. You gave it a good shot! Keep your chin up."

Individually, coffee and beer are both worthy and capable of filling these roles in our lives. But it's not until they're combined that the magic really happens. Such was our discovery 7 years ago when we infused the first casks of Worthy Adversary with Peace Coffee. The transformation into an entirely new and delicious beer was so dramatic that War & Peace was born. Since then, War & Peace has evolved into its own recipe and brand and has become one of Fulton's most popular and sought after beers. And this year, it's even better than ever. The Guatemalan Dark Roast aromas practically leap out from the glass, and are confirmed by every sip. This beer is unapologetically coffee-forward with a serious stout backbone.

Unlike Worthy Adversary, we don't advise cellaring War & Peace for an extended period of time. The aromatic oils extracted from the coffee beans during the conditioning process are very delicate, and tend to dissipate over time. That's not to say it won't still be a great beer a year or more down the road, but as time goes on, it will lose coffee character and begin to resemble a more traditional imperial stout. Not a bad thing by any means (and it is fun to contrast an aged version with a fresh version), but in our opinion it's not the best way to enjoy your War & Peace.

2017 War & Peace launches tonight (January 19th) in our taproom, and begins to hit the rest of our distribution territory next week. Look for it on draft and in 4-packs of 12 oz bottles. As with most of our seasonal releases, we produce War & Peace in relatively small quantities, so it won't be on shelves for a long time. Once you've had one, let us know what you think of this year's version on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
