Creating Cornish craft ale from a coffee collaboration
Coffee and beer? Not too sure?
Well let us introduce to a truly unique Cornish beer: Las Brisas 6.3% Espresso West Coast IPA.
As the name suggests, this beer is a combination of a West Coast-style IPA and espresso coffee. The result is a unique and complex beer with a strong hop flavour and aroma, balanced by the bitterness of the espresso. The beer has a dark amber colour with a creamy head, and a strong, rich flavour.
The Las Brisas 6.3% Espresso West Coast IPA is made with a variety of hops, including Citra, Simcoe, and Amarillo, which give the beer its characteristic citrus and piney notes. The coffee is added to the beer during the brewing process, which gives the beer a subtle coffee flavour without overpowering the hops.
Las Brisas is a delicious and well-crafted Cornish beer that showcases the creativity and skill of St Ives Brewery in partnership with Yallah Coffee Roasters.
Yallah Coffee is a small-batch coffee roaster based here in Cornwall. Founded in 2013 with the goal of sourcing and roasting high-quality, sustainable coffee beans, Yallah Coffee works directly with small-scale coffee farmers around the world to ensure that their beans are ethically and sustainably sourced.
The collaboration with Yallah Coffee was a natural fit, as they share the same commitment to craftsmanship and quality. The coffee used in the beer is a special blend of beans that have been roasted specifically for this beer. The coffee provides a subtle but distinct flavour that complements the hops and adds depth and complexity to the beer.
This partnership is a great example of the growing trend of collaboration between craft breweries and specialty coffee roasters. Both industries have a deep appreciation for quality, craftsmanship, and innovation, and working together allows them to create unique and exciting products that push the boundaries of what's possible.
In addition to collaborating with us, Yallah offer a range of high-quality coffee beans and products, including single-origin beans, espresso blends, and brewing equipment. They also have a strong commitment to sustainability and ethical sourcing, working closely with their farming partners to ensure fair wages and environmentally responsible practices.
Las Brisas is part of our 440ml craft beer range, available in cans at retailers or directly from our website. If you are on the look out for a unique Cornish craft beer then this is the one for you and is available here.
