Monogram + O.T. Brewing – JAVA

Back in October 2018 the teams over at Monogram & O.T. Brewing released their first collaboration, the ARDI Beer (see article)Well they’ve done it again, and this time their Natural IMG_1206Java Coffee Beer was created with its debut taking place at The HopWired Festival that took place this past weekend in Vancouver.

O.T. Brewing had this to say: “Our second collaboration with Monogram Coffee brewed for Hopwired Festival 2019 features the fully natural-processed Tibebu Roba from Ethiopia. Natural Java begins as a blonde ale that gets dosed with brewhouse-brewed coffee after primary fermentation. Expect notes of blueberry cheesecake with extra crust!”

I was excited to have timed the release of this on a day when I was already downtown so I swung by Oak & Vine to pick up a four-pack. After getting it home, and chilling it naturally (the only good thing about this polar-vortex), I cracked one open and was very pleased.

If you get the chance to pick some up, expect to pay around $12/4-pack. I love these types of collaborations between local Calgary companies.
