Tom Green Summer Stout is a sun-kissed golden ale with roasty and rich stout-like flavour. It is brewed with cacao nibs, and infused with organic fairtrade Colombian coffee roasted locally at Ottawa’s Bridgehead Roastery. A hint of sweetness is contributed by the milk sugar in the recipe. Created collaboratively with Canadian actor and comedian Tom Green!
History & Style
A blonde stout (also known as a golden stout) achieves an almost magical juxtaposition of appearance and experience, by infusing a brilliant, clear golden ale with stout-like aromas and flavours of coffee and cacao. The coffee used in this year’s edition is a medium-roast organic fairtrade coffee from the Colombia Ecological Producers of Planadas. It was roasted by Ottawa’s Bridgehead Roastery and features aromas of chocolate malt, vanilla, cacao nibs, and dried fruit.
Tom Green Summer Stout pours clear golden-blonde with white foam. Coffee and cacao provide their classic aromas to this beer. The mocha flavour notes are supplemented by subtle berry nuances. The finish is mildly sweet and lingering.
Strawberry, arugula and fennel salad with white balsamic & poppy seed dressing; grilled venison sausage on a crusty bun with red pepper marmalade; mascarpone cheese tiramisu.
