More about Stumbling Monkey

This annual exceptional release has developed a large and passionate following! Each year, we get an American oak barrel that has aged a spirit, then a beer, then we age unroasted Ethiopian natural process coffee beans in it for 30 days. We then take the unroasted coffee beans out of the barrel, roast these amazing coffee beans, and ship it out to our raving fans!

Brewed hot or cold or even as espresso, Stumbling Monkey leaves quite an impression. Not sure if you'll like it? We've learned to coach people:

  • If you like whiskey and coffee, chances are you'll like Stumbling Monkey.
  • If you like one, but not the other, there's less of a chance you'll like Stumbling Monkey.
