Ozo Coffee & Boulder Beer Collaboration

Join us at the Pub for a special beer release and countdown to St. Patrick’s Day party!

We will be tapping Irish Blessing, an Oak-Aged Coffee Stout brewed with an abundance of black and chocolate malts for a bittersweet chocolate finish.

Boulder Beer collaborated with local roasters at Ozo Coffee Company to determine the perfect roast to complement the stout, choosing the OZO Blend to use in the brew adding earthy, roasted coffee flavors to the beer. Boulder Beer then aged the Irish Blessing in Jameson Irish Whiskey soaked oak, imparting the finishing touches of whiskey and wood!

Rumor has it that an Irish themed jokes and toasts competition will also take place. Slainte!
