Lift Bridge’s Irish Coffee Stout

St. Patrick’s Day 2016 may be a date of the past, but don’t that keep you from tracking down Lift Bridge Brewing Co.’s stellar Irish Coffee Stout.

Lift Bridge Brewery Irish Coffee Stout

This tasty beer from the Stillwater-based brewery returned for the fifth year and it’s as good as it’s ever been. You’ll want to find it in your favorite liquor store in 750 ml bottles or catch it on tap at Lift Bridge’s taproom before it’s ushered out of the rotation for the year.

Here’s how Lift Bridge describes the deep, delicious beer:

Morning, noon, night – any time is the right time for this delightful combination of whiskey, coffee and cream. Russian Imperial Stout is aged in whiskey barrels and blended with a big Milk Stout, before it’s finished off with local free trade organic roasted coffee. You don’t have to be Irish to appreciate this labor of love, but you’ll certainly feel the luck. Great with desserts, including chocolate cake and cheesecake.
