What's With The Cans?
Style: Brown Ale with Coffee, Vanilla and Cacao Nibs
This Brown Ale is brewed with a heaping amount of Cubano-style espresso beans, vanilla and cacao nibs. Rich coffee notes dominate this beer, while it finds balance with a smooth malty backbone. Pairs well with arroz con leche and, of course, a delicate shot of Cubano espresso.
Brewed with a proprietary blend of coffee beans produced in tandem with Buddy Brew Coffee in Tampa, Florida.
- ABV: 5.5%

Malted milk, chocolate and fresh-ground coffee bean aromas bring to mind the finest cup of authentic cubano espresso coffee while flavors of toffee, semi-sweet chocolate and a touch of roast on the palate are complimented by espresso and a touch of vanilla.
