Catawba Brewing Releases Small Batch Coffee Blonde

20 April 2017

imageFrom Catawba:

Catawba’s latest Small Batch release represents a new trend in craft beer, the paradoxically pale-colored Coffee Blonde (5.9% ABV). Like the Cream Ale at its roots, the beer is light and crisp, endlessly drinkable. The recipe takes an unexpected left turn after fermentation, thanks to aging on whole Ethiopian coffee beans. The coffee imparts delicious notes of roast and dark chocolate typically associated with Porters and Stouts, without detracting from its refreshing quality. Vanilla Beans and Lactose Sugar add a hint of sweet cream to top off this cold brew. A light beer that tastes like a dark beer, this is the perfect spring beer for coffee-lovers.

Coffee Blonde is Passport Beer #16 in Catawba’s 2017 Small Batch rewards program – available in their three tasting rooms, and in limited distribution. Passport holders who achieved a perfect First Quarter, collecting all 13 stamps, are eligible to win free Navitat Zipline Tours, in addition to their "First Layover" prizes already redeemed. The drawing will be held on the Coffee Blonde release day (Thursday, April 20), 7pm at Catawba’s South Slope location.
