Off Color Beer for Cafes Chai Style Ale....$9.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
Traditional chai masala spices (cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, and cloves) contribute a sweet, earthy aroma and peppery warmth. The spice blend is enhanced by chewiness from a large portion of unmalted grains and unfermentable lactose sugar while black tea contributes a tannic roundness.
We cold brew a loose leaf chai masala blend to extract as much flavor from the spiced tea as possible. Then the tea undergoes a hot steep to extract the tannins, followed by the addition of more spices at the end of the hot steep to maintain as much essential oils from the spices as possible. The concentrate strength chai masala is then back blended into the chewy base beer.
