Boundary Bay Brewery Collaborates With Bellingham Bay Coffee on Nitro Header Stout
Boundary Bay Brewery has teamed up with Bellingham Bay Coffee Roasters to create more local connections within their community. The brewery recently made the decision to serve coffee from Bellingham Bay Coffee Roasters in their brewpub since it is made by a local, family owned and operated coffee roaster. The decision was an easy one for the owners at Boundary Bay Brewery because they craft their beer in a similar fashion and place a great importance on supporting the community and local economy
Bellingham Bay Coffee Roasters created a signature blend for Boundary Bay Brewery that is comprised of coffees coming from South and Central America, as well as from Africa. It’s a medium-dark roast and is hand roasted by Fernando & Emma Torres, owners of Bellingham Bay Coffee Roasters, using a drum-roaster with no computers or profiling equipment. The entire roasting process is checked using their senses (smell, touch and visual characteristics of the bean), along with years of experience roasting coffee. The blend itself offers a nice, dense body with pleasant, well-balanced acidity and slight blueberry notes on the finish.
This new working relationship between the two local businesses has also inspired a new beer for Boundary Bay Brewery. They have just created a Nitro Header Stout using coffee from Bellingham Bay Coffee Roasters. The stout is a lighter, dry style stout blended with Bellingham Bay Coffee Roaster’s Morning Header Blend and served from a Nitro tap. The Morning Header Blend is a dark roast blend of coffees from South and Central America and is 100% certified Organic. It has a nice, heavy body with smoky tones and very light acidity. This new coffee stout is currently on tap at Boundary Bay Brewery and will be available on tap at Civic Field during the Bellingham United soccer team home games.
Ed Bennett, owner of Boundary Bay Brewery, is proud of this new connection to another local business here in Bellingham. He says “It’s a great way to build relationships in this community, strengthen our local economy and support the new Bellingham United soccer team. This is exactly what local beer, local business and local living can achieve!”
