Dryhop Teams Up With Intelligentsia For Coffee Beer

2013_11_11_dryho[.png For many of us, beer and coffee are our two favorite things, the bookend to our days. Beer gets us up in the morning and coffee puts us to bed. Wait...we mean the opposite. Right. The opposite. That's why, when we heard about Dryhop's latest collaboration, we sat up a little straighter in our chairs.

This Wednesday starting at 6 p.m., Dryhop will debut "My Mirrors Are Black Cuban Coffee Stout," made with Intelligentsia’s Yirgacheffe Ethiopia coffee. There's also guava and blueberry in the mix.

That's not all that's happening on Wednesday at Dryhop. Intelligentsia will be serving coffee (so you can try the blend without the beer) and four other coffee-beer mashups will be available for comparisons. So if you're a big fan of the bean and the brew, you had better get down to Dryhop on Wednesday night.

Dryhop is located at 3155 N. Broadway Avenue.
