MobCraft Beer turns ideas into beer. In 2013, founders Henry Schwartz and Andrew Gierczak began their dream of a crowdsourced brewery where the people decide what’s brewed. If you have an awesome beer idea or recipe, you can submit your idea on their website & see if it gets voted thru to brew! The voting starts on the 1st of the month and ends on the 21st or until pre-sale sells out, whichever comes first. The beer with the most pre-orders wins and is brewed, packaged and available for pickup at the brewery. All of their winning crowdsourced recipes are available in the website’s Recipe Vault!

The beer we decided to highlight is a 2014 GABF Silver Medal Winner in the Coffee Beer category which is called Bat$h!t Crazy Coffee Brown (Love the name!). Unfortunately, BJCP guidelines doesn't have Coffee Beer as a category but we will use the base beer of an American Brown with a specialty in Spice, Herb and Vegetable beer. The American Brown base beer overall impression is a malty but hoppy beer frequently with chocolate and caramel flavors. The hop flavor and aroma complements and enhances the malt rather than clashing with it. In judging and creating a SHV beer, the brown base beer shouldn't be covered by the addition of the coffee but compliment it. This particular brown may not have the traditional American hop flavor and aroma but a good single dose of Nugget will do the trick. This allows the coffee to shine as well as not creating a bitter bomb as coffee can add bitterness to it. Knowledge has been dropped!
