A few years ago, we set out to create a new kind of coffee beer -- instead of a stout or porter with coffee, we wanted to create a light colored, malt-forward, rich base beer which would dovetail into the nutty, chocolatey, and fruity flavors of a lightly roasted coffee. The delicious result of that effort was our award-winning Vienna Coffee Beer.
Fourth Wave is the version of that beer brewed with single-origin Stumptown Coffee and aged for 10 months in Heaven Hill Bourbon Barrels. The name is a tribute to the latest era of the artisan coffee movement, which treats coffee as an artisan foodstuff and agricultural product. We think of our beer in the same way, and it’s no surprise that great coffee and great beer make such a fantastic pair. Show Less
