A dark beer made with a touch of roasted chicory, organic Mexican coffee, St. John's Wort, and licorice root. Brewed with whole-leaf Cascade and Fuggles hops, the grains include pale, roasted & oatmeal.
Chicory is one of the first beers we started brewing when the brewpub opened back in 1995. That's back when we had a teeny, tiny brewing system and had to brew all day, every day to keep up the bar stocked. Brewing with the same four ingredients got real boring, real fast. That's when Sam's ADD kicked in and he started adding some non-traditional brewing ingredeints.
Chicory Stout is our winter seasonal and released in bottles each year in the November/December timeframe. We do brew this beer in smaller, draft-only batches for our brewpub throughout the year.
It is roasty and delicious. It is also a fantastic food beer and pairs very well with chocolate!
