Our latest release, Bumpers not Included: Coffee Milk Stout, has silky tan head, creamy mouthfeel, lightly roasted coffee flavor balanced with stout sweetness. Coffee cold-brewed with lightly we roasted Ethiopian beans.
We typically only name our double IPA's here at the brewery. The inspiration for this beer's name came from a Craigslist ad we encountered at the end of the summer. We were looking to get another delivery vehicle, and one was for sale in Gunnison, about 5 hours away from the brewery. The owner was selling it with the 'bumpers not included'. We sent a nice email to the owner stating we were interested if it drove well, and looked good, but going all the way to Gunnison was a long way for a truck that didn't have bumpers. We politely asked if the owner would consider include the bumpers, as this was craigslist and some bargaining is typical of transactions that take place on there.
The seller responded with an long expletive fueled email that must have caught him on a bad day. He wasn't selling the truck with bumpers, and he told us we were idiots for asking such a ridiculous question. The diatribe he responded with was funny to our twisted sense of humor, so we knew it had to be a beer name, thus we now have Bumpers NOT Included. With the seller's attitude, we knew the next beer we named would have attitude as well.
We hope you enjoy it.
