A collaboration between Bottle Logic Brewing and Magnanimous Brewing is meant to replicate the flavors of the traditional Mexican coffee beverage named café de olla.
That beer is Transmit In Color 2020, a 14.72 percent ABV imperial stout brewed with Mexican Bella Vista coffee, Ceylon cinnamon and piloncillo before being aged on staves taken from both bourbon and tequila barrels. The name of the beer references the field-sequential tricolor disk system invented by electrical engineer Guillermo González Camarena, a machine which changed the color of television transmissions.
Transmit In Color 2020 is a member of Bottle Logic’s Stasis Project Series, which “celebrates the barrel as a fifth ingredient” and includes other notables such as Concentrated Solution 2020 (20.59 percent ABV), Equivalent Dose 2019 (13.49 percent ABV) and Arcane Rituals 2019 (13.59 percent ABV.)
According to Bottle Logic, Transmit In Color will be packaged in 500ml bottles ($22.95) and will have a four bottle per person purchase limit. Interested parties will have the chance to order tickets redeemable for bottles on March 8 via Eventbrite with bottle pickups starting March 14 and no proxies will be allowed. Finally, bottles may be available for purchase in the Tasting Room if they do not sell out during the online sale.
