  • Friday, February 15th. Beer Release: Bantu Blaze Coffee Brown (Gluten Free Ingredients). Blue Blaze Brewing. 4 pm-9 pm. We’re excited to release Bantu Blaze Coffee Brown in draught. It’s a 4.5% bantu beer that was brewed using all gluten-free ingredients. This unique beer boasts a universe of complex flavors including hints of tart, oats, and coffee, and has a lingering hop finish.

    Made with all gluten-free ingredients, Bantu is an alcoholic beverage common throughout Africa (and other parts of the world) that has been made with millet or sorghum. This 4.5% beer was brewed using 100% gluten-free ingredients, such as millet, oats, etc. and infused it with local Enderly Coffee Company so that it comes across superbly nice as a coffee brown ale without many of the sour notes that are typical of gluten-free beers. As any gluten-free dieter will tell you, it is incredibly difficult to find a gluten-free beer that tastes great … but we think we’ve found it!

    Independently lab tested at under 10ppm gluten (max. 20ppm) and Made in a Gluten Facility.

    Swing by the taproom from 4:00 – 9:00 for a pint or growler to go!
