RateBeer Score    91 Style

A Vienna style lager brewed with lightly roasted Ethiopian ANYETSU coffee using a recipe handed down by Kurt Vonnegut’s grandfather, who was a brewer. The beer is a malty sweet and copper colored brew with low bitterness (20 ibu) that showcases balance and nuance of coffee flavor in a very clean and drinkable lager.
The recipe for this beer was given to Wynkoop founder John Hickenlooper by the late author. The first batch of was brewed in 1996 and then again in 2007 as a tribute to Kurt’s passing. We are brewing it to celebrate our 25th year in business and by recreating some hidden gems in our trick bag, we are paying tribute to our brewing history.

Don't let the copper color fool you. This isn't the dark ale you expect. This is a special bottom fermented lager that lives up to our quality standards. It gets its color from the unique roasting of the barley malt. It refreshes like the true lager beer it is.
