Introducing Coquito, our winter release of the Mixology Series.
Inspired by the classic Puerto Rican holiday drink, this imperial cream ale is made with coconut, cinnamon, vanilla, lactose sugar, and aged inside Caribbean rum barrels.
Coquito will be available at the tap room in 12oz bottle four-packs on October 26th for $14.99. Bottles and draft will also hit retailers throughout our distribution footprint for the winter season.
About the Coquito
Coquito meaning “little coconut” is a creamy cocktail hailing from Puerto Rico that’s traditionally enjoyed during the holiday season. It’s commonly made with Puerto Rican rum, coconut milk, coconut cream, sweetened condensed milk, and spices. Stored in the iconic glass swing top bottle, the Coquito is served cold and garnished with a cinnamon stick.
To create the ultimate beer version, we started with an imperial cream ale brewed with lactose sugar for a creamy body and mouthfeel. The beer is then sent for an extended stay inside Caribbean rum barrels to impart characteristics of sugar cane and oak. Finally, we blend the beer with coconut, cinnamon, and vanilla for luscious notes reminiscent of the holiday drink.
