Getting to Know Bent Paddle Brewing Co. [VIDEO]
St. Cloud - Bent Paddle Brewing Co. is expanding their tap selections to St. Cloud! The crew is in town again tonight (Thursday, May 28th) for a final five stops to celebrate the Duluth based beer hitting local taps and liquor stores.
Here's a look at their tap takeover schedule:
I met them out last night at the White Horse to try their Cold Press Black Ale. It's infused with fresh Duluth Coffee Co. "Crazy Juice" and I've been on a coffee beer kick ever since Third Street Brewhouse put out "Cool Beans" earlier this year (I need more!!!).
It's funny how every coffee infused beer I've tried has been so different from the last. Not only are you tasting the ale, but also, whatever kind of coffee beans they decided to pair. Makes for an interesting flavor experience.
Cold Press had a nice rich undertone from the Black Ale, which I have yet to try on it's own. I found this to have a strong, lingering coffee after taste. A little bitter, but it paired really well with the spicy lamb tips I was eating.
Can't wait to try more from this northern Minnesota brewery which features the beautiful waters of Lake Superior in their crafting process.
