Alaskan Brewing Company teamed up with Juneau-based Heritage Coffee Roasting Co. to craft a new beer that accentuates the richness of coffee and the smoothness of premium malts. The result is Alaskan Heritage Coffee Brown Ale, the latest pilot series of beers, available now in 22-ounce bombers and on draft in the 17 states where Alaskan Brewing is distributed.
“We were looking to brew a coffee beer that wasn’t overly dominated by dark malts,” said Alaskan Brewer Tyler Lindquist. “That’s why we went with a brown ale for this beer. The subtleness of the brown ale allowed us to accentuate the richness of great coffee, instead of the bitter, acrid flavor that sometimes comes through in coffee beers.”
