Ithaca Beer Launches Super Stout as a Year Round Brand in 2016

Ithaca Beer Super Stout

Ithaca, NY – Back by popular demand, Ithaca Beer Company is launching Super Stout as a full year brand in package and draft in January 2016. First released in early 2015, Super Stout was well received by coffee lovers and craft beer drinkers alike.

Super Stout is brewed with a specially developed blend of high quality Arabica coffee beans sourced from a small batch coffee roaster and does not use extracts or commodity grade coffees. In a collaboration between Ithaca Beer Co. and Ithaca based coffee roaster Gimme! Coffee, a variety of unique roasts and blends were developed in order to meet a specific taste and aroma profile for this very special release. Gimme! Coffee was selected by Roast Magazine as their 2013 Coffee Roaster of the Year.

Just like a perfectly brewed cup of coffee, Super Stout is remarkably balanced, with no single flavor overpowering another. The chocolate essence of dark roasted malt, the creaminess of oats and a mellow hop blend are all complemented by the fruity wine and cocoa characteristics of Gimme! Coffee’s select roast.

Super Stout will be available in 12 oz. bottle 4/6 packs and draft throughout Ithaca Beer’s Northeastern distribution network. With a mild 5.2% abv, Super Stout is an Oatmeal Stout brewed with Two Row Pale, Crystal, Chocolate, Midnight Wheat malts, Roasted Barley and Oats and hopped with East Kent Goldings and Challenger varieties.

To launch Super Stout, Ithaca Beer will host several “Super Brunches” in key markets. In addition to Super Stout paired brunch dishes, the Super Brunches will feature beer cocktails including Apricot Wheat Ale Mimosas, Daydreamer Kölsch Margaritas and Bloody Zillas – Bloody Mary’s made with Cascazilla Red IPA.
