Stone Brewing has been crafting up quite the array of collaboration beers with breweries from all over the country. From Dogfish Head and Victory, to Elysian and Ninkasi here in the northwest.
Their latest collaboration is one of the most unique and interesting they have put out, a coffee IPA that is offered in 22oz bottles and on draft for a limited time.
The recipe comes from 3 friends Jim Moorehouse, Nate Albrecht and Brad Zeller, who are planning on opening up a brewpub in Chicago named Aleman. They won first place in last years Iron Brew homebrewing competition, a comeptiion judged by Jason Ebel of Two Brothers Brewing and Greg Koch, founder of Stone brewing.
With the recipe coming from Aleman, freshly roasted java from Two Brothers Brewing, and brewing completed at Stone, the 3 companies crafted Dayman Coffee IPA.
Check out this video produced by Stone talking about it.
What’s interesting is the name Dayman, which will have meaning for fans of the show It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. The recurring Dayman theme has really taken off among fans and makes for a fantastic name for this beer.
Here is a quick video from the show of the creation of Dayman.
Dayman Coffee IPA was released in March and just hit stores here in Oregon. For those outside Oregon and California, they are distributing it to the following states for you to get your hands on: AZ, CA, CO, FL, IL, IN, MD, MA, MO, NC, NM, NJ, NY, OH, OR, PA, SC, TX, VA, VT, and WA
Weighing in at 8.7% ABV, this doesn’t appear to be a sissy IPA.
