Local Blend features the same beer infused with four different Ohio-roasted coffees
“We love coffee almost as much as we love beer, so we had this idea to partner with some of the best roasters in the state to show how the flavor profile of a coffee beer can be so different depending on the beans,” said Ryan Blevins, MadTree head brewer. “We made sure the beer took a bit of a back seat so the coffee could shine. Overall, it was awesome to see how their passion for coffee mirrors the passion we have for crafting quality beer.”
Deeper Roots head roaster, Adam Shaw, said, “It was great to be able to be a part of the process from the beginning to ensure we were able to create such specific flavors. The brewing and roasting were all done so purposefully to steer the beer with the coffee.”
A Local Blend can release party will be held on Saturday, January 5 at 10AM at the MadTree Taproom at 3301 Madison Rd in Oakley. Roasters from Deeper Roots, Phoenix, Stauf’s, and Boston Stoker will be on-hand brewing free, fresh cups of the coffee used in the beers (while supplies last) and Deeper Roots will have a mobile roaster to give a live coffee roasting demonstration. Mixed four-packs of cans will also go on sale for the first time for $12.50 each (including tax).
The four-packs go on-sale throughout Ohio and Northern Kentucky beginning Monday, January 7.
