Later this year, The Bruery will release White Mocha, a 16.3 percent ABV wheatwine-style ale brewed with cacao nibs sourced from Berkeley, Calif.-based TCHO as well as fresh coffee beans from Tierra Mia Coffee in California. The finished beer was then aged in bourbon barrels for an unspecified amount of time before being bottled.
This is not the first wheatwine-style beer The Bruery has sold, after White Chocolate (14.5 percent ABV) brewed with both cacao nibs and vanilla beans was first released in 2012.
According to a post on the Placentia, Calif.-based brewery’s Twitter page, White Mocha will be packaged in 750ml bottles and should be available to members of the Bruery’s Societies in “one to three months.”
An email sent to the brewery for clarification regarding, an exact release date, brewing details and allocation information was not immediately returned.
