Angel City Brewery Releases Cold Brewski Hard Coffee

LOS ANGELES — Some good news for LA coffee lovers who are looking for a little kick in their cup: Angel City Brewery has developed Cold Brewski, a new gluten-free hard coffee. As of April 10th,4-packs of cans will be available at the brewery, with plans to be available in select stores by next month.

Cold Brewski clocks in at 5% ABV, at 110 calories per can, best enjoyed over ice, doctored up with favorite coffee accoutrements. The new innovation from Angel City Brewery is a nitrogenated, cold-brewed hard coffee made from fermented cane sugar and coffee beans. The brewery used an industrial grinder for optimal flavor and aroma. The combination is then cold-aged, followed by a Nitrogen infusion to give it a creamy mouthfeel.

“This was a really challenging innovation to work on,” said Head Brewer Layton Cutler. “The sheer mass of coffee used to make Cold Brewski was huge and is like nothing we’ve made before. It turns out to be a super versatile liquid – on its own for brunch, or as a mixer for a fun evening cocktail!”

Angel City Brewery brews beer for the greater LA area and beyond at their Downtown based brewery in the heart of the Arts District. The Brewery’s Public House features a 19-tap bar that serves an ever-changing roster of classic and newly inspired beers and is open seven days a week with a full calendar of events ranging from trivia nights to art shows, live music and festivals.
