Notes / Commercial Description:
As featured in "Project Extreme Home Brewing", this is our Ethiopian-inspired sour ale, brewed with Teff and Gesho, and having cold-brewed Yirgacheffe Coffee added after fermentation
C.A.F.E. Sour brings a new twist to the already popular world of coffee beers. Keeping with Christopher’s favorite coffee’s from Ethiopia, the beer is made with beautiful Ethiopian Yrgicheffe provided by Plowshares Coffee Roasters in Hillburn, NY. In keeping with an overall Ethiopian theme, Whole Grain Teff and Gesho Leaves & Sticks were used. Teff is a staple grain of Ethiopia used in their sourdough bread called Injera. And Gesho is used for bittering in the traditional Ethiopian beer “Tella”.
We wanted to push the boundaries of creativity. Since Teff is used in sourdough bread, we thought: why not make a sour beer?
The end product results in a truly unique coffee-inspired experience: light in color and body, with an Earthy flavoring from the coffee that blends wonderfully with the exotic flavors from the sour beer. A refreshing and delightful beer for the summer ahead.
