Part I of today’s new batch o’ beer labels.
Samuel Adams Black and Brew Coffee Stout: Recall that a coffee stout was one of two Beer Lovers’ Choice beers in 2008. It lost to the Blackberry Wit which was brought into the rotation in 2009 but every dog has its day. Label copy…”Our Coffee Stout is a full-bodied, rich stout that supports the espresso character of the coffee. We use 1.5 pounds of Sumatran coffee per barrel. Rich and toasty, the flavor leads with coffee and follows with underlying notes of chocolate, caramel and dark fruit.”
Florida 321 Beer: Following the news of AB InBev trademarking area codes, Flordia Beer Co. submitted a label approval application for 321 Beer. 321 is the area code for Brevard County in Florida. Goose Island, of course, has 312 Wheat Beer in Illinois.
Southern Tier 5 Boroughs and I-90: Speaking of local branding, Southern Tier has approval for 5 Boroughs Belgian Style Pale Ale (7% ABV) and I-90 Pale Ale (6% ABV). Both just keg collars at the moment…
