Beer Geek - NW Coffee Beer Invitational

Jan 22, 2015 -- 9:25am

Thanks to my friend and Portland brewing royalty Dave Fleming for coming on the radio to talk about the 2nd annual Northwest Coffee Beer Invitational.  It's this Saturday 12p-7p at the Goose Hollow Inn...

16 creative and fun coffee themed beers on tap this year, proving you can do more withi coffee than a coffee stout!

Here's a partial list of some of the beers...

Buoy Beer
The base for our Brown Coffee beer is a traditional malty brown ale that
emphasizes chocolate and caramel notes. Ground
Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee beans, roasted in Astoria at Columbia River Coffee
Roaster, are added to secondary conditioning in a process that is similar to dryhopping.
Cold steeping the coffee this way produces true coffee flavors and
aromas that play well with the beer’s base to create an enjoyable treat. Grab a
brew. 5.5% ABV, 20 IBU’s
 
Coalition
Jumpy Juice
7.0% ABV 20 IBU
What do Portlanders and long haul truckers have in common? They both love
coffee! We call it plain old coffee around these parts, but the truckers call it
Jumpy Juice, a name we've borrowed for this special offering. At its base, Jumpy
Juice is a dark Belgian ale...fruity Belgian esters and candi sugar sweetness pair
delightfully with Seven Virtues Columbia Tello coffee, contributing notes of roast,
pear, toffee, and white grape. We don't condone drinking and driving, but when
you get to that truck stop for the night, enjoy a pint of Jumpy Juice. 10-4,
Coalition out.
 
Elysian
Cthulhu Imperial Oak Aged Coffee Stout
A malevolent Stout worthy of its ages-old Lovecraftian namesake, Cthulhu brings
together components from Earth's dark, dead corners: Crystal malt, Munich,
roasted barley, chocolate and black malts, midnight wheat, and flaked oats. This
monstrous stout was bittered with Jarrylo hops, along with some late Belma,
then aged on American Oak staves and infused with Stumptown Cold Brew to
set minions ululating with delight.
SG 20°P; 48 IBU; 8.6% abv.
 
Fire On The Mountain
Spanish Coffee Mud
For this years Coffee Beer Invitational, we at FOTM Brewing Co. have brewed up
what might be the perfect winter beer. What could be better than a rich beer
form of the classic cocktail, Spanish Coffee? We started with our house
chocolate oatmeal stout, Electric Mud, fermented it with sweet orange peel, and
blended it with freshly roasted Guatemala Tikal coffee beans from our friends at
Spella Cafe. From there, we conditioned it on rum soaked oak and vanilla
beans. The result is a truly delicious beer that covers the major food groups;
coffee, rum, and most importantly beer! Please enjoy responsibly for breakfast,
lunch, or dinner. 6.7% ABV
 
Gigantic
Sabotage! Coffee Baltic Porter
Sabotage! clocks in at 8% ABV with a huge aroma and flavor of chocolate,
caramel, dark fruit and roast melded with cold pressed Coava coffee.McMenamins
Onward Caravan Turkish Coffee Ale
(Crystal Brewery • Dan Black and Drew Phillips)
We teamed up with McMenamins Coffee Roasters Martyn Leaper and Kelly
Ockinga to make an ale based on traditional Turkish coffee. Along with a nut
brown ale base full of smooth caramel malt tones, we highlight flavors and
aromas of fresh nuts, chocolate, heavy cream, and golden syrup from our
Kenyan and El Salvador locally roasted coffee beans. A slight roastiness rears
up at the end, along with the full floral spiciness of ground green cardamom
seeds added during the brewing process and post-fermentation. A unique,
satisfying brew.
Malts: Maris Otter, Rolled Oats, C-65, C-120, Chocolate, Roast
Hops: Nugget, Meridian
OG: 1.057 TG: 1.013 ABV: 5.68 IBU: 19 SRM: 16
 
Migration
Odilicious Strong Ale
ABV: 7.8% IBU 75
Odilicious was made with Costa Rican cascara (coffee pulp) from Sustainable
Harvest located right here in Portland Oregon. Odilicious is deep mahogany in
color and fills the palette with a rich malt body and pronounced notes of tobacco,
raisins and dried red fruit. Healthy doses of cluster and fuggle hops balance out
the fruit and earth profiles from the cascara.
 
Pints
Our beer is a Mocha Banana Split.
The base beer is PINTS' Hibernator, a German-Style Weizendoppelbock (7.6%
ABV, 18 IBU). It is like liquid banana bread, but in a really good way. Add cocoa
nibs, a judicious shot of Portland Roasting's Goose Hollow coffee, then toss a
cherry on top and bam! That is a Mocha Banana Split.
 
Sasquatch "Wired Whale"
Our Moby Dick Imperial IPA with a cold coffee extraction. Deep notes of citrus
and coffee excite the senses! 9.5%ABV 90 IBU's
Walking Man
Happy Feet Coffee Brown Ale
We worked with Bryan Wray of Compass Coffee in Vancouver fairly extensively
to find a roast and origin of coffee that would pair well with our Barefoot Brown
Ale. After a few jittery afternoon tasting sessions we settled on a medium roast
from Kenya. It lends wonderful nutty and fruit flavors that play well with the malty
hazelnut and caramel notes found in the the Barefoot Brown. 5.5% ABV 22 IBU
