Two Beers and Anchorhead Partner on Cold Brew Brown Ale

Two Beers & Anchorhead Partner on Cold Brew Brown Ale

Seattle, WA — Two Beers Brewing Co. is excited to announce the return of its Cold Brew Coffee Brown Ale, with a new highly caffeinated partner: Anchorhead Coffee. A chocolaty brown ale infused with locally roasted beans from the popular small batch roaster, this Seattle-inspired beer is crisp, refreshing and subtly sweet with a cold brew kick. Available in 12-ounce cans beginning Thursday, February 2 at The Woods tasting room and on draft at Anchorhead’s downtown Seattle cafe, Cold Brew will soon be available throughout the Pacific Northwest.

“We love partnering with local companies like Anchorhead to take beer to the next level,” said Joel VandenBrink, founder of Two Beers Brewing Co. “Their unique roasting process and the flavors that shine through make this beer one of our favorites, and perfect for everything from brunch to backpacking.”

“Ever since we started this company, we wanted to partner with a brewery to do a cold brew specific beverage, and we couldn’t be happier that it’s with Two Beers Brewing,” added Anchorhead Coffee Co-Founder Jake Paulson. “We tested every coffee we have for this collaboration, and are very excited with the end product!”

Anchorhead Coffee is a small batch roaster focusing on sourcing the best coffees available, one of which is the Guatemala Codech found in this Cold Brew Coffee Brown Ale.  Tucked in the Sierra De Los Cuchumatanes, the highest mountain range in Central America, the Codech Co-op produces some of the best coffees in all of Guatemala.  This coffee undergoes a washed process, and offers notes of hibiscus, green grape, and chocolate.

To create this beer, a process similar to the one used to make cold brew coffee is used. Starting with a base of chocolaty brown ale, the beer is run through a second fermenter containing 18 pounds of course ground coffee beans per batch. The beer is run through these beans continuously for four hours before sitting on the beans for another 20 hours, making for a balanced and flavorful brew. Low in acidity and subtly sweet due to the cold brew process used, a rich coffee nose and flavor shines through. However, while the flavor may be bold, there is no caffeine in this delicious brew, offering an approachable 5.2 percent ABV and 18 IBUs.

Cold Brew Coffee Brown Ale enters the brewery’s seasonal can lineup for spring, joined by Day Hike Summer Session Ale (summer), Fresh Hop IPA (fall) and Tipsy Toboggan Winter Ale (winter).
