Love is in the air here in Mountain Maryland, and one thing we know for sure – we LOVE this #MadeInAlleganyCounty collaboration between 1812 Brewery, Allegany County’s sole farm brewery, and Basecamp Coffee Co., Allegany County’s reputable and growing coffee roaster, to create 1812’s Basecamp Coffee Stout.
Cory McCagh, owner of 1812 Brewery, and Hayden Ort-Ulm, owner of Basecamp Coffee Co., first discussed the idea of collaboration on a whim while hanging out over some craft beers in a Downtown Cumberland pub. From there, the idea stuck and the coffee stout was born.
“Coffee beers are trending right now, and I was excited that Cory was receptive to the idea,” says Hayden about the collaboration, “Both of our businesses continue to grow, and this partnership shows the community that up and coming businesses are collaborative and work together.”
Brewed with Basecamp’s Cold Brew, a blend you may recognize from the Cumberland and Frostburg Farmers Markets, this stout is said to have a smooth feel, medium body, and plenty of coffee flavor.
Don’t let us tout the stout, taste for yourself at the Release Party on Friday, February 16, at 1812 Brewery! Tour the taproom and facility, situated on 52-acres of the old Richard Fagan farmland, and fall in love with 1812’s Basecamp Stout. Can’t make the Release Party? The brew will be available at 1812 Brewery throughout February, but don’t wait too long – this is a limited, small batch release!
Just in time for FeBREWary, Maryland’s official month-long celebration of craft beer, the 1812 Basecamp Stout release exhibits a few things we appreciate most here in Allegany County – collaboration and cold, craft brews.
