On the final day of St. Louis Beer Week yesterday, Urban Chestnut Brewing and Kaldi's Coffee officially released their new joint coffee brew: Sertãozinho.
As we reported in mid-July, the craft brewer and specialty coffee roaster joined forces to create coffee beers that go beyond the traditional dark and heavy-roasted styles. Their new collaboration - the Enlightenment Series – is described as, “A coffee - bier collusion intended to inform and enlighten the collective of passionate coffee and beer drinkers to the possibilities of ‘bean-meets barley.’”
The first beer in the series is a blend of a Brazilian coffee, Sertãozinho, and a traditional Bavarian Weissbier. The end product is a complexly flavored, lighter-bodied beer with subtle notes of fruit and coffee.
Sertãozinho will be served at Urban Chestnut. Plans for future tastings and availability of the bottles are still being finalized.
