Little Creatures has teamed up with Cartel Coffee Roasters to create an espresso martini beer and we’re sold

We volunteer as tribute.

If you’re anything like us, after a long week at work you don’t mind kicking back with a shimmering espresso martini at your favourite bar.

The most famous coffee cocktail to come along since the Irish Coffee, the winning combo of espresso, vodka and Kahlua has long been the culprit behind those wild work-party stories, terrible first dates and hilarious nights dancing on the tables at Piano Bar.

But what if we told you some local legends had combined the iconic cocktail with beer?

Introducing the Espresso Stoutini.

Keep up with the latest local food and booze news via our website.

Brewed up by Little Creatures Brewery, a business that continually pushes the boundaries on flavour combinations and creative collaborations, in partnership with coffee champions Cartel Coffee Roasters, this clever concoction brings together the best of both worlds.

As the name suggests, the Espresso Stoutini is their spin on a classic espresso martini cocktail. Created with nitrogen to provide that smooth, creamy martini-esque foam, this brew takes the classic stout recipe and added a bunch of deep smooth chocolate and coffee flavours. The result is a dangerously drinkable 7.8% jet-black brew.

Coffee plus beer for winter – tick.

Brewed up for GABS in Melbourne next week, the Espresso Stoutini will be on for a limited time only at the Little Creatures Canteen in Geelong.

Officially launching in G-Town on Frdiay, May 28, the LC team will be celebrating with $5 middies of the brew from 4:30 with all proceeds going towards a local charity. You can read up more on the launch here.
