For Valentines Day, each writer was challenged to proclaim their love to their favorite beers. These are their interpretations of the idea. We hope you enjoy!
Good morning my beautiful coffee stout,
You combine two of my favorite things: coffee and beer. I can drink you first thing in the morning, or with a huge scoop of ice cream in the evening for dessert. Your roasty tones and your tiny hint of caffeine is perfect for when I need a little boost to start my day. Your sweet, boozy flavors help me relax when at the end of my evening.
I would like to give special recognition to some of you that I call my favorites. You are all coffee stouts but you each bring something a little different to our relationship:
Pizza Boy’s Sunny Side Up (in both original and barrel-aged versions)
Weyerbacher’s Sunday Morning Stout
Monacacy Brewing’s Brewtus
Troegs’s Java Head
Alesmith Speedway Stout
Terrapin Wake n Bake
Founder’s Breakfast Stout
My dear cofffee stouts, I thank you and I love you. I hope to enjoy even more of you in the near future. In fact, now that I think about it, you will be the perfect addition to my Valentine’s Day. See you then!
