Brewbound: Great Divide Brewing Co. Partners With Pablo’s Coffee on Coffee Porter
DENVER – Two Denver businesses with roots stretching back to the mid-90s have teamed up to explore how their two crafts can interact. The result is Great Divide Brewing Co.’s latest Tank Farm release, Coffee Porter, brewed with barrel aged beans from Pablo’s Coffee.
“We’ve utilized Pablo’s beans for our beers and our coffee makers here at Great Divide for years,” said marketing manager, Matt Sandy. “When we contemplated brewing a coffee porter, Pablo’s was the obvious choice and we brainstormed a process to give this particular coffee porter a little extra prestige.”
Though a Coffee Porter might sound simple on the surface, the resulting brew is the culmination of a unique, multi-step process. After de-barreling and packaging the 2019 edition of Barrel Aged Yeti Imperial Stout, select barrels were transported to Pablo’s Coffee where they were filled with green coffee beans from Mexico and aged to perfection. Once the beans had been imparted with flavor of whiskey, stout and barrel, they were roasted, ground and returned to Great Divide to brew this Coffee Porter.
