A Floyd County coffee roaster and a Virginia brewery are getting together to create a coffee cream stout.
Red Rooster Coffee Roaster and Starr Hill Brewery plan to release a small batch of Little Red Roostarr Coffee Cream Stout, said Red Rooster proprietor Haden Polseno-Hensley . The beer should be available where Starr Hill is sold beginning in March, he said.
The idea came together when the two companies were providing drinks to performers backstage at FloydFest, Polseno-Hensley said.
Polseno-Hensley will roast the coffee beans and send them to Starr Hill’s brewery in Crozet.
Red Rooster plans to release a Starr Hill roast featuring whichever roast Starr Hill chooses for the cream stout.
