A Note on This Beer
Winter Bough from Laughing Monk Brewing features the quintessential flavors of San Francisco.
Head brewer Jeff Moakler drew inspiration from the city while meandering up and down the signature hilly streets, and through throngs of tourists and locals.
Strolling past the landmark Ghirardelli Square, Jeff was exhilarated by its aromas of rich dark chocolate. “This Bay inspired brew will definitely need some bittersweet cocoa.”
As he sauntered past Andytown coffee roasters he was overwhelmed by the pungent scent wafting from the doors. “What better compliment to chocolate than coffee?”
Now Jeff had his signature SF ingredients figured out.
But he wanted to pair them with a base beer that elegantly delivers the flavors and mouthfeel of a San Francisco-stye nitro cold brew. Being the Belgian-minded brewer he is, Jeff recognized that coffee and cocoa would harmonize beautifully in a 9% ABV Quad. The combination balances warming comfort with a drinkability that makes craft fans lose track of how many they’ve had.
Winter Bough is a one-of-a-kind Belgian style chocolate-coffee treat. We only have two hands and one mouth, and that is always a problem when attempting to taste all that San Francisco has to offer. Until now.
