Chalk this one up on the long list of reasons I wish I lived closer to Austin, Texas.
Last week, the beer-and-coffee loving Mike McKim ”owner of Cuvée Coffee in Austin ”hosted a Sputnik Release Party at the Cuvée Coffee Bar. Sputnik is a coffee beer collaboration Mike created with Austin Beerworks; it’s an oatmeal stout that uses Cuvée Coffee as the primary ingredient.
So the party was already a big deal. But the debut of Crowlers made this night extra special. “Crowlers are one-use, recyclable 32-ounce cans that are filled and sealed on location,” says Michael Manes of Cuvée.
“Developed by Oskar Blues Brewery in Colorado last year, Crowlers ”Can plus Growlers ”are the sanitary and recyclable cousin to the growler,” continued Michael Manes. “Over the last year, the introduction of the Crowler has created a lot of excitement for beer lovers across the nation, and we’re excited to be the first to bring them to Austin.”
Hard to say what was a bigger hit at the party in Austin last week ”the Sputnik or the Crowlers. Wait! It had to be Sputnik in a Crowler ”of course!
