Wolcott, CT – Shebeen Brewing Company is kicking off the New Year with the release of one of its most popular seasonal beers, JavaPig Stout—the newest addition to the brewery’s can lineup. Made in Connecticut using locally roasted coffee and bacon, JavaPig is the brewers’ take on a traditional dry stout kicked up a notch in true Shebeen fashion.
Shebeen is excited to continue its partnerships with Shearwater Organic Coffee Roasters (Trumbull) and Nodine’s Smokehouse (Torrington) to make this remarkably unique rich, roasted stout.
“We were excited to get involved in this project to help Shebeen, another local Connecticut company, put out a great beer that would contain Shearwater Organic Coffee. I understand that JavaPig Stout has won over many fans. Congratulations to Shebeen!” said Shearwater’s Ed Freedman.
JavaPig Stout will be available throughout Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina from January through March; sold both in six-packs and on draught. Despite being a dark rich stout, this winter seasonal is surprisingly sessionable with a light body and an ABV of 5.1 percent. JavaPig Stout is the perfect beer for sitting by a fire, whether with a meal or as a meal.
About Shebeen Brewing Company:
Though they just celebrated their two year anniversary in May, the idea for Shebeen Brewing started a quarter of a century ago, when its founder and Master Brewer Rich and his friend Scott, now the Head Brewer for Harpoon, ventured into home brewing when few even knew it existed on the East Coast. Rich took this homegrown experience, passion for beer, and his cultural roots from his birthplace of Northern Ireland, and finally opened the brewery in May of 2013. Shebeen or Sibin is Irish Gaelic for illegal brewhouse or better known in the States as a Speakeasy. Although, Shebeen Brewing Co. is a legal craft brewery, they keep that speakeasy spirit alive by creating interesting and challenging beers, alongside their flagship Irish Pale Ale. Sláinte!
