Founders Brewing Company, Grand Rapids, Michigan
Smells like a coffee shop and tastes like a buttery chocolate pastry. If it were socially acceptable to drink an 8.3 percent beer every morning, you’d swear off Pop-Tarts forever. It’s bold, rich, and flavorful with a perfect amount of bitterness.
Santa Fe Brewing Company, Santa Fe, New Mexico
With loads of coffee aromas and flavors, high alcohol, and a bitter finish, Imperial Java Stout has hair-of-the-dog intensity and a complex malty taste you can savor. Plus, it comes in a can for your on-the-go lifestyle.
Breckenridge Brewery, Denver, Colorado
Twenty-two years ago, Breckenridge Brewery began making Oatmeal Stout. Today it’s the same hearty, creamy concoction that’s worth getting out of bed for. Notes of coffee and a noticeable bitterness round out this brew nicely.
Moa Brewing Company, Marlborough, New Zealand
Having noticed that the day’s first meal was an underserved beer-drinking opportunity, Moa brewed this crisp, tart, refreshing, and bubbly wheat lager with cherries. Mornings will be held hostage by champagne no longer.
