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!
