New on Tap at The LR – Wolaver’s Alta Gracia Coffee Porter – ORGANIC, FAIR TRADE & DELICIOUS!
“This great tasting beer is the result of a fantastic collaboration of farmer, roaster, and brewer – all with strong Vermont ties. For nine years we have been importing certified organic coffee from our sister farm – Finca Alta Gracia – in the Dominican Republic. The farm was founded and is stewarded by husband and wife Bill Eichner and Julia Alvarez, who live in nearby Weybridge, Vermont. All the proceeds of the Alta Gracia coffee sales are returned to the community through the fair trade prices we pay, the support we provide for a community literacy program and teacher, and our donations that fund a sustainable agriculture volunteer. Our Coffee Porter is an exceptionally smooth and flavorfully complex beer that is surprisingly true to the porter style. The hint of vanilla brings out the sweetness of the dark-roasted Dominican coffee.”
