Austin brewery Uncle Billy’s will be introducing its new coffee IPA, Oro Negro, during a tasting event on Friday, June 23 at 5p.m.
Based on the stunning success of the tiny batch First Friday Firkin of Coffee IPA introduced on June 1, Uncle Billy’s decided to brew a bigger batch of 20 barrels to be served only in the Taproom on Barton Springs Rd.
Oro Negro is made based on a revised recipe for the brewery’s mainstay beer, Green Room IPA. Unlike Green Room, this IPA has been dry hopped with enormous amount of Centennial and Citra to give a pucker-you-up bright citrus notes and clean bitterness that are tamed with a roasty chocolate flavor from the coffee.
In honor of the release, Uncle Billy’s is offering $5 pints and you can buy a pint of Oro Negro, a quarter pound of smoked brisket and a side for $13.
The brewery and smokehouse is located at 1530 Barton Springs Rd.
