3 Daughters Brewing is out to prove the headline’s adage with the A-Wake Coffee Blonde Ale. The St. Petersburg, Florida brewery has decided to take the ‘fun in the sun’ route in their entry into the coffee beer arena. Unlike most beers with a coffee flavor, the A-Wake is light and well suited for a full day on the fishing boat. Being from Florida, and a blonde ale, this makes total sense.

We were recently asked on Episode 35 about coffee beers that actually taste like coffee. Apparently, one of our listeners had trouble finding beers which deliver on their promise of effusing those roasty and bitter flavors. It was a pretty easy question to answer with beers like Bell’s Java Stout, Green Flash’s Cosmic Ristretto, Founder’s Breakfast Stout, and Pizza Boy’s Sunny Side Up out there. I personally found it harder to try and think of a beer that wasn’t good on the coffee flavor.
