Blonde Ambition - Brewing Up Light Coffee Beer

John Russell, the brewmaster at The Lone Girl Brewing Company, has innovatively crafted a light-colored coffee beer named Moka Mon! Jamaican Blonde Coffee Stout.

At 5.5% ABV, Moka Mon offers a light java background flavor, achieved by steeping whole Jamaican coffee beans directly in the fermenter.
