Ballast Point’s Calm Before the Storm

Ballast Point’s Calm Before the Storm

Ballast Point just released a coffee ale with a touch of cream. “Calm Before the Storm came from a quest for a warm weather alternative to our Victory at Sea Imperial Porter. Like its more robust cousin, we infuse a punch of flavor using cold brewed Caffé Calabria coffee and a hint of vanilla. But this time, we added it to a lighter-bodied golden cream ale. The end result is a surprisingly bright, coffee-forward beer that’s perfectly refreshing.” 5.5% ABV, 15 IBU’s. Cape Fear Wine & Beer currently has this beer in stock, available in 12 ounce six packs. Get it while you can!
