Usually a cold beer isn’t what you’re thinking about when the wind chill is below freezing.  But the Winter Grind from Mother’s Brewing Company is the perfect cold beer to warm you up from the inside – out.  And it’s just one of the many beers we are now offering from out newly installed beer market in Cactus Creek’s Main Street shop here in Weston Missouri.  Back to the Winter Grind + Mother’s Brewing Company and a couple of things you may not have known…

#1 Mother’s Brewing Company is located in Springfield, Missouri – just 3-ish hours from Cactus Creek in Weston, Missouri.

#2 Winter Grind from Mother’s Brewing Company is a rich COFFEE Stout.  What does that mean?? Winter Grind is an English Stout beer {dark brown to pitch black in color + commonly with a roasted flavor}.  For this recipe Mother’s Brewing Company adds 1.5 obs of roasted-to-order espresso beans from Mudhouse Coffee to add to each barrel of beer.  This is where caffeine meets beer.

#3 Did you say beer WITH Caffeine??  So it’s less than a soda’s worth of caffeine but nonetheless, we’ve all had days that you need both beer and caffeine simultaneously.  And stat.
