Ask any craft brewer and they’ll tell you one of the most important parts of their business is community.
Making sure they found the right community for their taproom, helping the community grow and making sure they are servicing the community are among the core values of the craft beer movement.
Brewers across the Twin Cities work in countless ways to better their community. One way is to create partnerships with local businesses.
Much like Tin Whiskers Brewing Co. is doing on their latest brew. But they’re not stopping there.
The St. Paul brewery isn’t merely creating a partnership between two businesses; they are creating a partnership between the two twin cities.
Tiny Circuit Coffee Stout, the brewery’s latest beer, is a collaboration between Tin Whiskers and Minneapolis-based Tiny Footprint Coffee.
The beer blends the Short Circuit Stout with Tiny Footprint’s Ethiopian Yirgacheffe dark roast. The sweet and roasted notes of the stout are blended with the velvety, fruity notes of the coffee bean to create a creamy and robust coffee stout.
“This was such a fun collaboration because we both have a great passion for the quality of our products,” president and one-third founder Jeff Moriarty said in a recent press release. “We got to learn from Tiny Footprint about the roasting process and where their coffee comes from while experiencing the environment of the roastary. We look forward to what this partnership will continue to bring.”
The name, as with the ingredients and production, is a blend between the two companies – Tiny Circuit Coffee Stout.
Tiny Footprint Coffee is the first ever carbon negative coffee company. The company sources Arabica coffee beans from small, family-owned and organic certified farms. Its roastery is located in Minneapolis.
Tiny Circuit Coffee Stout will be released at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 21. It will join the taps to be served as a nitrogen. For more information on other brews, and hours, visit Tin Whiskers online.
