coffeeThe phrase “hopped up on caffeine” takes on new meaning with local coffee roastery Crimson Cup releasing a dry-hopped coffee today.

The cold brewed coffee comprises Crimson Cup’s Jorge’s Pick Guatemalan blend with a dry hopped infusion of hops from Oregon. The coffee will be poured using the same nitrogen tap system used for nitro beers, creating the mouthfeel of a well-balanced stout.

A launch party for the Dry Hopped Nitro Cold Brew is slated for tonight, Thursday, September 25 from 4-7pm at the Clintonville Coffee House, located at 4541 N High Street. The event will feature free samples of the coffee, free food from the Schmidt’s Sausage Truck and polka music for an overall Oktoberfest vibe.

The coffee shop will continue selling the Dry Hopped Nitro Cold Brew through October 31 or while supplies last. The Dry-Hopped Nitro coffee will retail for $3.50, and for $12 customers can keep the limited-edition tulip glass in which the beverage is served.

Anyone else dreaming about blending this coffee with a rich stout for drunk brunch this weekend?
