Local Coffee Beans Take Part in Brewing QC’s Favorite Beer
It could be said that the Quad Cities loves two things: Coffee and Beer. An easy argument for that case would be the Uncommon Stout, which is in the running for Quad Cities favorite beer. It might not have the widespread appeal and distribution of a Cherry Bomb Blonde, but if you ask any local beer lover about their favorite beer you can be sure Uncommon is in the conversation.
A few years back, Bent River introduced the Local Uncommon Tour 2022 and plan to continue the tour this year. They'll replace the normal "Uncommon Coffee Bean" with a select batch of beans from your favorite QC Coffee shop. The rest of the Uncommon brew will be the same, they'll just swap out the beans.
You'll be able to understand what changing just one aspect of a beer will do to the taste and appreciate a brewers job that much more when they stay consistent.
According to Bent River Brewing Co:
It’s back! After a year off, we are excited to bring back one of our favorite promotions.Join us every Wednesday, 3/16 - 5/18, as we feature an expression of our beloved Uncommon Stout finished with a hand-selected coffee from one of our participating local coffee purveyors.
