Peter B’s Brewpub Launches ACME Coffee Collaboration Brew

Peter B’s Brewpub has been satisfying taste buds at the Monterey Peninsula for years. Now, Brewmaster Kevin Clark of Peter B’s Brewpub is at it again with a new brew that combines many Americans’ two favorite things: coffee and beer.

Clark’s creativity brought about the idea to collaborate with ACME Coffee to make this new winter brew. The partnership has created a perfect blend and balance of each of the unique and distinctive flavors in one drink. The beer is crafted carefully to assure that each flavor has been brought out to complement one another in every sip. To ensure that one flavor never overpowers another, Clark steeps and filters the coffee, making it an extremely low acid concentrate.

The recipe will consist of coffee brews from ACME’s Sumatra, Flores and Ethopia roasts, which all fall on the dark side of medium. Clark is adding black malt for color and dark foam head, roaster barley for rich airy roast and chocolate malt for cocoa flavor. Clark explains that the key to blending all these flavors is to cold steep the coffee for two days and blend it with the beer.
