Roasts & Brews
For those who love coffee and beer we're excited to announce that we recently collaborated with Lucky Owl Brewing on their Retrofit Porter. The porter was made with our Espresso, which we roasted a bit darker to give it a smokey flavor so that it could stand out in the beer. The result is a lightly sweet, chocolatey porter with hints of dark roast coffee. Our Espresso is a blend of our Colombia Huila Excelso and Oaxaca Mexico coffees, which lend additional notes of cocoa, honeycomb, and amaretto.
Lucky Owl's Brewmaster, Jeff Bradbury, commented, "We like how Gray Duck Coffee complemented the base porter and added a rich coffee character that was smooth yet complex. It comes across as less acidic than the previous coffee we used."
Can't wait to try it? You're in luck. We'll be at Chuck's Fine Wines this Saturday from 11:30-2:30 where you can get it by the bottle or on draft. We'll also be doing pour-overs and So Sweet Gluten Free Bakery will be joining us with treats.
Be on the lookout for Lucky Owl's spring line up coming soon: Renew Spring Saison with Ohio grown spelt, and Blossom, a limited pale ale available only in Chagrin during Blossom Time festival, May 25-28.
