Common Roots Brewing Company
A Note on This Beer
As fresh powder dumps on mountains and ski lifts open all around the country, only one challenge stands between adventure seekers and an epic day on the slopes — what to drink on the chairlift. Is it coffee to perk up or a craft brew to get loose?
Although they don’t necessarily condone the choice to drink and ski, the father-son brewing duo at New York’s Common Roots Brewing Company want to make sure you do it right if you decide to go the beer route.
No one sympathizes more with this coffee-or-beer conundrum than Christian and Bert. With ski slopes less than a fifteen minute drive from downtown, a day on the mountain is easy access for locals of the picturesque town of Glens Falls.
Fortunately, today’s Coffee Cup Double Stout steps in to save any snow bunny’s day! A choice between coffee or beer will never result in compromise again.
Combining 2.5 lbs of sustainability sourced Kru Coffee per barrel, this delectable Stout drops buckets of flavor from dark espresso, to light caramel, and dried fruit. Layers of light and dark chocolate glide on the palate while just a dusting of roasted malt kicks up in the finish.
Boasting a boozy 9% ABV, Coffee Cup Double Stout will give you just enough liquid courage to take on the slopes or make you feel extra roasty by the lodge’s toasty fire. As ski bums like to joke, you’ll only ski better with beer. And based upon the 4.2 rating on BA, it’s clear this Coffee Cup will help you do so in style.
