2015 Double Coffee Porter Release

by / Thursday, 29 October 2015 / Published in Brewer's News, Slider

Today Dry Dock released the 2015 batch of Double Coffee Porter at Canoe Room at North Dock. This popular whiskey barrel-aged Signature Series beer is back for the second year.

The Double Coffee Porter was brewed in collaboration with Denver’s Coda Coffee. “We sat down with owners of Coda, brothers Tim and Tommy Thwaites, and blind tasted six of their varietals,” says North Dock Head Brewer Alan Simons. “We unanimously settled on Coda’s Kenyan Karatina varietal. It is a bright and fruity/citrusy coffee that marries well with the chocolate, vanilla, caramel and whiskey notes of the Double Porter.”

Double Coffee Porter will tap at Canoe Room at North Dock at 2801 Tower Road, Aurora, 80011 on Thursday, October 29 at 2pm. It will be available on draft and in bombers at North Dock throughout the weekend. This beer will then be available at South Dock and in liquor stores across Colorado in mid-November. Less than 200 cases of this beer will be distributed throughout the state.

Double Coffee Porter first debuted in 2014 as part of the Signature Series, a collection of barrel-aged double and imperial beers. It is the fourth of six Signature Series beers that Dry Dock will release in 2015.
