DuClaw Brewing Company (Baltimore, Maryland) recently announced that Sweet Baby Java – Espresso Bean Infused Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter will be joining the brewery’s Year-Round lineup this spring.
Released as the first bottled variant of the brewery’s iconic Sweet Baby Jesus Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter, DuClaw Brewing Company found the inspiration to create Sweet Baby Java over two years ago when they “ran Sweet Baby [Jesus] through a Randall contact infuser filled with coffee beans.” After that keg kicked in record time, the brewery has since featured the coffee-treated Sweet Baby Jesus at several events and received consistent, “overwhelmingly positive” feedback. This being the case, the folks at DuClaw eventually “realized there needed to be a way to put this into a keg or bottle on a regular basis.” After developing a large-scale process that involves a Hop Gun filled with coffee beans, Sweet Baby Java is now a reality.
“We spent a lot of time searching for the ideal bean and roast to transform Sweet Baby Jesus into Sweet Baby Java. From there we were able to scale up and leverage our giant contact infuser, the Hop Gun, using coffee beans instead of hops, and now we have Sweet Baby Java.”
– Dave Benfield, Founder of DuClaw Brewing Company
According to DuClaw Brewing Company’s Facebook page, Sweet Baby Java is a new Year-Round offering that will undergo a staggered launch during the months of spring. This offering will eventually be available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at craft beer-friendly establishments in Florida and throughout the rest of DuClaw’s distribution footprint. Watch those shelves and enjoy a little coffee with your peanut butter when Sweet Baby Java hits your local shelves and taps. Prost!
