Big Sky's Cowboy Coffee Porter is Beer for the Open Range

Big Sky's Cowboy Coffee Porter is Beer for the Open Range

Resisting the temptation to place a seasonal beer in the year-round lineup is difficult. Doubly so when it comes to coffee porters—a style growing in popularity. That’s one of the many reasons I have respect for Big Sky Brewing Co., out of Missoula, Montana, and its Cowboy Coffee Porter, available for only two months each year. It’s the strong, silent type; it’s a lone rider; and it’s fantastic.

The aroma of coffee hits first, leading the drinker to consider it a breakfast beer—yes, that’s a style now too—and if this Cowboy were canned, I’d recommend it as a replacement for a cup of Joe while on a ride. If proper packaging could be achieved, this beer in a bottle would be the ideal last drink before shuteye under the open night sky around the campfire.

As the darker-than-charcoal Cowboy Coffee Porter warms in the glass its smoky and chocolate flavors stretch and smooth out like a ranch hand at the end of day.
