Allagash x Speckled Ax Coffee Bean Collaboration

BDN’s new Portland culture blog Urban Eye has a report on a collaboration between Speckled Axe and Allagash.

Armed with 40 pounds of green beans (at their most absorbent before roasting), [Speckled Ax owner Matt] Bolinder walked into the brewery’s cold cellar, stacked high with wooden barrels of aging triples, and took over two empty vessels.

“Instead of adding coffee to the beer, I’m adding elements of brewing to my coffee,” he says with a runaway smile.
