As our evenings get darker earlier, our selection of beers at the Co-op gets darker too. The stouts and porters start popping up in a wider variety of flavors and brands. One of my favorites is Bell’s Arabicadabra (pun intended). A little brewers’ magic in the Bell’s Brewery transforms locally roasted Arabica beans and a variety of specialty malts into a creamy, intense coffee stout. Enjoy before it disappears.
Arabicadabra is brewed with a cold coffee extract made at the brewery using a combination of fair trade, organic Nicaraguan coffee beans and Sumatra coffee beans. Lactose is also used for creaminess (those with dairy allergies or sensitivities should take note). It was inspired by Milchkaffe, another specialty Bell’s beer.
Check out this and other great new dark beers from Bell’s Brewery in the warm beer section at the Littleton Food Co-op. -Ed
