Oskar Blues Brewery and their in-house, coffee addiction-inspired Hotbox Roasters tag-team once again to pair roasted aromas, flavors and a frothy buzz together in new craft beer creation, Hotbox Coffee Porter.
Hotbox Coffee Porter (6.4% ABV/30 IBUs) has a malted base extracted from English and German roasted and caramel malts, and is comprised of flavors like roasted nuts, crème brûlée, cocoa and caramel. Hotbox Roasters then crashes the party and infuses potent, cold-extracted coffee from Burundian and Ethiopian beans and deals old flavors and aromas of dark plums, chocolate and hints of blueberry.
“Hotbox wake-n-roast gets us rolling in the brewhouse day in and day out.” said head of brewing operation’s Tim Mathews. “Hotbox Porter shows that beer and coffee were meant to be together. Digging in with Hotbox Roasters allowed us to develop a malt blend and a coffee blend that gel beautifully.”
Hotbox Roasters is a ColoRADo craft coffee roaster specializing in the highest quality, fair-trade coffee beans available to coffee fiends nationwide. Hotbox currently offers eight different roasts from around the world and is constantly searching for premium beans to add. Hotbox Roasters cans its freshly roasted beans using the Oskar Blues & Ball Corporation Crowler™, a one-use, recyclable can that is filled and seamed right on location at the Hotbox Roasters Dock in Longmont, ColoRADo. An Oskar Blues Fooderies-driven Hotbox Roasters physical location will open at 3490 Larimer St., Denver, CO in fall 2016. This will be the first location for the Longmont-based craft coffee roaster and will open directly next to the upcoming craft casual CHUBurger location in the Denver RiNo neighborhood. Stay tuned for 12oz. cans of Nitro Cold Brew from Hotbox Roasters yet this year.
Brought to you by the original craft beer in a can, Hotbox Coffee Porter is available nationally in four-pack, 12 oz. cans and draft from September through November.
