Epic Son Of A Baptist With Hotbox Roasters Tequilla Barrel-Aged Coffee

Brewed by Epic Brewing Company

Imperial Stout8.0% ABV

Independent Craft Brewer Seal

The latest Son Of a Baptist partnership is with Hotbox Roasters, founded by Dale Katechis of Oskar Blues. We were lucky enough to sample an ultra-limited Tequila barrel-aged Ethiopia Yirgacheffe, and it blew our minds. The coffee explodes with bold flavors, the expected blueberry and pomegranate from the bean's natural processing combined with an impressive amount of agave and smoke imparted by its time in the tequila barrel. After the first cup we knew we had to use it in Son of Baptist and the results are striking, to say the least.

This collaboration represents a nexus of synergetic connections crisscrossing the beverage world, and could be the poster child for upcycling. The tequila barrel started its life out in Mexico aging premium spirits before being retired to Oskar Blues, where it was used to produce GUBNA. After that, it was sent to Hotbox for their barrel-aged coffee project, and the resulting beans are now showcased in Son of Baptist.

Barrel-aged coffee beans were a completely new concept for us. We had no idea that coffee beans could absorb so much aroma and barrel character. We are stoked on what those beans brought to Son of a Baptist and we are excited to explore more barrel-aged beans in the future. This release will be served on draft and in 22oz bottles in Colorado, and in other select markets.
