RACK ‘EM UP SERIES #2: Blue Ball Coffee-Infused Vienna Lager with Badger & Dodo
ABV 4.5% 24x440ml case of cans
For #2 in our RACK ‘EM UP SERIES of collabs, we’ve joined up with good friends and local coffee roastery Badger & Dodo, which was set up by Aussie Brock down the road from us in Fermoy, Co Cork, in 2008.
The initial brief was simple – ABS: Anything But Stout – so we decided to go for a lighter beer style. This Vienna Lager uses three classic continental malts – Vienna, Munich and Pilsner – to highlight the nuances in the coffee. After some cupping at Badger & Dodo HQ, we decided on a natural process Ethiopian coffee. Using cold brew to draw out the red berry flavours with little bitterness, we finished with some espresso additions in the conditioning phase for a final flourish.
