Koko Buni Makes Seasonal Return for Creature Comforts Brewing Co.

CCKokoBuni_editedCreature Comforts Brewing Co. (Athens, Georgia) recently announced that Koko Buni, the brewery’s seasonally released Milk Porter, will begin hitting shelves and taps again in mid to late December.

Released each year as Creature Comforts Brewing Co.’s fan-favorite Winter Seasonal, Koko Buni is a Milk Porter brewed with toasted coconut, Ecuadorian cocoa nibs sourced from Condor Chocolates, and an Ethiopian coffee blend from 1000 Faces Coffee. Although this combination results in “rich and velvety” flavors, the 6.5% ABV Koko Buni achieves a beautiful balance where “none of the flavors are overpowering or fatiguing on the palate.”

“We decided not to be traditional with the beer and add some ingredients that play well with the existing roasty and chocolatey flavors of dark beer,” said Co-founder and Head Brewer David Stein. “The result is a decadent porter, yet balanced and not over the top. Each flavor has room to individually interact with your palate, which is always a challenge as a brewer when using so many ingredients.”

Koko Buni is scheduled to officially release on December 19 with availability in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft.  You can expect to find this Seasonal offering onsite at the brewery as well at select craft beer establishments in the Athens and Atlanta, Georgia markets.  Prost!
