According to labels filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), Southern Tier Brewing Co. is working on releasing Cold Brew Coffee Nitro Pumking, an 8.6 percent ABV imperial pumpkin ale brewed with “natural pumpkin and coffee flavors” that will be packaged in 13.6-ounce cans.
Cold Brew Coffee Nitro Pumking Nitro will be packaged in cans that include an integrated technology to release nitrogen when opened instead of the more common carbon dioxide, which gives the beer a creamier texture.
As the name implies, Cold Brew Coffee Pumking Nitro uses Southern Tier’s Pumking Nitro Imperial Pumpkin Ale that was released last year as its base. In addition, the brewery released a variant with a similar name in 2018 sans nitro, namely Cold Press Coffee Pumking, an Imperial pumpkin ale brewed with cold press coffee that was packaged in four-packs of 12-ounce bottles as well as 500ml bottles.
An email sent to the brewery for additional information was not immediately returned.
