Coffee and beer have so much in common. They’re used to either wake you up and keep you going during the day or to help you relax in the afternoon. According to this article, they even have a similar history. I found it quite interesting. More people choose beer over wine. Similarly, coffee is a definite beverage of choice in the morning.
For a few years now many brewers have been trying to create coffee stout. Coffee stout is a beer brewed with coffee added either during the boil or the fermentation. Dark roasted malts can give a bitter coffee flavor to dark beer. Some brewers will even add ground coffee and chocolate…sounds good.
I like the combination of beer and coffee. In fact it’s recommended that if you want to try this combo together, just pour a tasty stout into a beer glass and add fresh coffee (wait until it cools down). Try an equal ratio of one to one. Beer is fun to experiment with the possibilities are endless!
