Local beer collaboration
Holler Brewing in collaboration with Greenway Coffee & Tea and Feges BBQ’s Patrick Feges have created the Houston Triple craft, a smoked coffee Marzen.

According to a Facebook post, John Holler combined this smoky grain with a blend of light and dark Munich malts and a touch of Noble German hops to produce a smoked Marzen (aka a smoked Oktoberfest). They loved the outcome, but thought it needed caffeine component. David Buehrer of Greenway Coffee & Tea stepped in an added freshly roasted Brazil pulp-natural coffee beans to produce a double-filtered espresso that ties the beer together.
