Raw coffee beans and distinct berry and earth notes to a beer and can often be confused as they don't produce a strong coffee flavor when compared to cold brew additions. We recommend throwing 3 oz. of uncrushed coffee beans (green or roasted) and allowing the Common to age on them for 5-14 days (taste to discover your sweet spot). It really changes the brew in some very interesting ways!
Our California Common has a rich malty character with slight hints of mint from the Northern Brewer hops. This combo makes it perfect to enjoy with savory meats like Pork or with hearty desserts like a Raisin Bread Pudding.
