KILGORE

COFFEE PORTER | 6.0% ABV

AVAILABILITY:

YEAR-ROUND | DRAFT ONLY

DESCRIPTION:

Developed by our own Jake Felton, Kilgore is the product of our partnership with A&E Custom Coffee Roastery, combining their Papua New Guinea roast with chocolate malts and a light touch of hops.

Not heavy like other traditional porters, Kilgore is as light and easy drinking as a glass of iced coffee.

THE STORY:

"Kilgore Trout once wrote a short story which was a dialogue between two pieces of yeast. They were discussing the possible purposes of life as they ate sugar and suffocated in their own excrement. Because of their limited intelligence, they never came close to guessing that they were making champagne."

- Kurt Vonnegut

Thus, Kilgore is a window into how Vonnegut really felt. The man had a strong opinion on almost everything, but the one for himself was never very high. Nothing he did was good enough; he always believed he could be doing better. This beer serves as a reminder to always be challenging yourself, because your probably on your way to doing something great whether you realize it or not.
