“We brew a lot with coffee,” says Burial Beer Co.’s Co-owner and Head Brewer Tim Gormley, “and that has a lot to do with the fact that we all met in Seattle. This is just one of four coffee beers that we make regularly at Burial. Our Coffee Milk Stout is the most talked about. We partner with Vortex Coffee a block away and serve a doughnut hole with it.”

The goal for Thresher was to prove that a coffee beer doesn’t have to be black, says Gormley. “Coffee beer can be light and nuanced. With that being said, I suggest using a light roast coffee, making the coffee as concentrated as possible and aiming to clarify the beer and coffee as much as possible to aid in accomplishing the goal of the beer.”
