Regular Coffee - Carton Brewing
By December 31st of each year, I'm already looking at January with reckless abandon because I know it's coming... Regular Coffee from Carton Brewing. An Imperial Cream Ale boasting a deceiving 12%, this beer is guaranteed to make you feel fantastic if you have more than one. I prefer to have just one and to sip slowly, enjoying every single second of it.
Sadly, it is released just once a year and usually with one or two variants to go along with it. Yet, I love to follow through with the tradition of at least once a year, having one with a classic New Jersey pork roll sandwich, as Augie Carton has intended. The coffee flavor from Fair Mountain Coffee Roasters comes through brilliantly and creates the perfect blend of coffee and beer to the point where you don't know if it's a coffee-beer or a beer-coffee.
You haven't seen true joy until Carton announces the can releases or until I walk into a bar and realize that they have it on tap. Drink Regular Coffee because I love it!
