Coughy Bier was brewed in collaboration with our pal Sebass (aka Sebastian Sauer), the wily brewer behind Freigeist out of Cologne, Germany. We took olive wood and Ethiopian Coffee beans and smoked 200 lbs of Pale Malt, just to see what kind of flavors we could conjur. The resulting character is soft, fruity smokiness overlaying a mildly roasty and rich malt body. It’s a delicious experiment!
