Beer For Breakfast

Some people love coffee. Some people love beer. But for those fence sitters who can’t choose a side in the battle of beans and booze, there’s a solution for you. Lagunitas Brewing Company (say LAH-GOO-KNEE-TUSS) based out of Petaluma, Calif. coalesced the morning jitters with happy hour resulting in a pint glass of black goodness they like to call Cappuccino Stout.


Rich in coffee notes and delivering a swift kick in the pants (9% alcohol by volume), the Cappuccino Stout delivers the best of both  brew worlds. It’s remarkably smooth despite the aggressive alcohol content. It pours out in the trademark black color expected of a stout, maintaining a frothy head until the last sip. However, for all the boldness of this beer, its silky on the pallet and goes down with relative ease. The intense flavor of coffee begs the question, is this okay to drink in the morning?


The Cappuccino Stout is part of a line of seasonal releases from the Northern California brewer. They employed a local coffee shop “Hard Core Coffee” to help build this beast of a stout. Traditionally, released in the colder months to help keep your spirits warm, Cappuccino Stout ($5 for a 22 oz. bottle) can be found year round.

Get your fix. It’s 8 a.m. somewhere!
