As the days get brighter so do the brews. Ground Breaker Brewing & Gastropub, the first dedicated gluten-free brewpub in the country, has announced the return of their spring seasonal, Coffee Pale Ale. The exclusive release will take place Wednesday February 24. Coffee Pale Ale comes in at 5% ABV and 30 IBU. This smooth but peppy pale ale is sure to get you through the last of the winter blues.
The combination of Equal Exchange’s Medium Peruvian roast coffee with a pale ale was selected by the guests in their Gastropub. “Having our own pub gave us the ability to try several coffee/beer combinations and get an immediate response from our customers,” said Ground Breaker’s head of R&D, James Neumeister. He continued, “We had assumed that blending coffee with our Dark Ale would be the obvious winner but no other coffee beer we made matched the positive response we received using this pale ale and coffee combination.”
For the exclusive release of their Coffee Pale Ale, the Ground Breaker Gastropub will be presenting a Wednesday Supper menu featuring Breakfast for Dinner. In addition to Coffee Pale Ale, there will be three specialty versions available only in the Gastropub. Vanilla Cream features additions of lactose, a generous amount of vanilla, and extra coffee. Mexican Chocolate includes chillis, cinnamon, and cocoa nibs. Valencia Coffee Pale Ale is a variant with lactose, orange, cocoa nibs, and extra coffee.
