French Quarter Temptress – Marching in now!


Laissez les bon temps rouler! French Quarter Temptress is rolling out to area bars and restaurants starting today! This will be DRAFT ONLY, with hopes to bottle next year. Be sure to check with locations on when they plan on tapping it, as it’s pretty limited and we don’t want you to miss it. Some places may tap it sooner than others. We WILL be tapping it THIS SATURDAY (9/6) during our tour, but we will not have any special FQ glassware as those are a market exclusive. Be sure to visit those bars when they tap it and keep your eyes and ears open for “keep the glass” nights around town (or just check our events calendar – that’s WAY easier).

September 4th (today) marks the exact midway point to Mardi Gras, so naturally we’re honoring the occasion by reprising the most requested cask in our “Seduction Series” by releasing a special limited edition batch of French Quarter Temptress.
Capturing the spirit and attitude of New Orleans, this beer possesses the boldness of barrel-aged coffee and chicory within the incredibly smooth 9.1 percent ABV Imperial Milk Stout. Using a process unique to coffee roasting, we partnered with Kevin and Marta Sprague at Noble Coyote Coffee Roasters in East Dallas to create the perfect combination.
We barrel-aged coffee beans, coining it Operation B.R.E.W. (Beans Resting, Enhanced by Whiskey.) Using one of our spent Bourbon Barrel Temptress barrels, Noble Coyote aged green Peruvian Cajamarca coffee beans for four months, which imparted subtle notes of bourbon to the beans. Once the beans were ready, Noble Coyote roasted the coffee and we added it to the beer along with a touch of chicory for some additional spiciness and complexity to give it that “signature” New Orleans taste.
As purveyors of a different kind of craft ‘brew’, we really respect Noble Coyote’s utilization of Fair Trade coffee and their passion for small-batch, artisan coffee roasting. It was the perfect choice for our French Quarter Temptress.   We hope you enjoy drinking this beer as much as we do. Now grab some beads, a beignet, and lets raise a glass together.
