If there are two well loved drinks that many consider vices, they are coffee and beer – the first because of its caffeine; the second because of the alcohol. Yet people keep drinking them. They are drinks that are enjoyed by those who love them irregardless of the time of day. They are automatic companions of their days.
Why not combine the two together? Many have found that having a little of each after a meal makes for a great ending to dinner. Who says that you have to have them in a separate glass or bottle? Welcome coffee beer!
Is it coffee flavored beer or is the coffee just foamy like beer? It is a conundrum for many but it doesn’t change the fact that it makes for an interesting drink. Some popular coffee beers are Vanilla Java Porter from Atwater Block Brewery, Cappucino Stout from Lagunita Brewing Co. and Bell’s Java Stout.
This will make for an interesting line. You can now say you were just having coffee with the gang while you were at the bar. Just don’t let her smell your breath because the smell of malt will definitely still be there.
