A collaboration with our friends at Tiny Footprint Coffee -- We have blended our slightly sweet and roasty Short Circuit Stout with their single source Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Negelle Gorbitu dark roast. This variety is an Indigenous Heirloom and has a full velvety body with juicy, ripe red fruit, and semi-sweet chocolate flavors and will result in an electrifying imbibing experience.
What’s with the name?
The name of this beer still has its roots in electrical engineering, but with a slight modification to highlight our collaboration. We have changed the word ‘Short’ to ‘Tiny’ for our friends at Tiny Footprint Coffee, but the name still harkens to the true engineering meaning.
By definition, a short circuit is an abnormal connection between two nodes of an electric circuit, often resulting in overheating, fire or even explosion. To us, this is the most characteristic way to describe the feeling you get when you ingest the combination of a delicious stout and high-quality, caffeinated coffee. Electrified.
Tiny Footprint Coffee is the world’s first carbon negative coffee company and sources the finest, sustainably-grown Arabica coffee beans from around the world. They are shade-grown, organic certified, and most often fairtrade or Rainforest Alliance certified. All of their roasting and training is done at their roastery in Minneapolis, MN.
Beer and Brewing Info
BJCP Style: Sweet Stout, 13B
In April of 2015, the astronauts on the ISS space station received the first ever espresso machine in space. The machine - called ISSpresso - is a box about the size of a microwave. You put in a pouch of water, add a little capsule of espresso and press the button marked "brew." The espresso comes out in a second pouch and then into a specially engineered 'cup' for drinking the beverage out of. That's out of this world!
