If you're in Downtown's Market Square for Light Up Night, and you need something to simultaneously loosen you up and keep you awake, squeeze into the Diamond Market Bar & Grill and try the new collaboration brew from the Church Brew Works and Nicholas Coffee Co.
This is the second coffee beer from the two local institutions, the first one being a stout. This one once again is made with the Maragogipe coffee, this time infused into the lighter Pious Monk Dunkel. The homemade tap handle just reads "Nicholas Coffee," but Jordan Nicholas says they're calling it Nicholas Coffee Dunkel, and a more formal unveiling might happen next week.
I'm hoping to grab a quick draft across the Square at Nola, where this morning I saw this great sign of the season.
Hello, St. Nikolas!
