7 Coconut Beers to Drink during the Year of Coconut Primary Image

Many trend-watchers have declared coconut 2016’s flavor of the year. Firmenich, a Swiss company in the perfume and flavor business, credits coconut’s trendiness to the emergence of coconut water at yoga studios. Personally, I’ve observed an emergence of coconut beers at breweries. Here are seven beers brewed with the flavor of the year.

Oskar Blues Brewery Death By Coconut

This Irish porter is brewed with dark chocolate and extra dark caramel malts, coconut, and pure liquid cacao from Cholaca in Boulder, Colorado. This beer, which won a 2014 Great American Beer Festival award in the Chocolate Beer category, comes out once a year in 12-ounce cans.

NoDa Brewing Company Coco Loco Porter

Here’s another chocolate and coconut porter that comes in a 16-ounce can. It’s a year-round offering from NoDa Brewing Company (Charlotte, North Carolina) that’s brewed with cacao nibs and coconut that’s toasted at the brewery.
