Only one thing gets Nomad’s Italian brewer going in the morning and that is a good doppio macchiato. The only other thing as important as coffee is beer so the idea was to put the two together to make their head brewer smile from ear to ear…. and they’re sure you will, too, when you taste it! Teaming up with local coffee roasters, Barrel One, they have not only added espresso coffee but coffee “bagged” the beer for extra aromas. As with its little cousin, Piccolo Stout, they’ve added lactose to give that rich creamy mouth feel which combines with the dark roasty malts and added coffee to make this a delicious dark milk stout.
Nomad is an Aussie owned, independent brewery that set up shop in an abandoned carpet warehouse on Sydney’s Northern Beaches almost two years ago. They’re a rag tag bunch of all different nationalities brought together by a love of great beer. All that combined experience, differing viewpoints and collected air miles mean they know a thing or two and there’s nothing they like better than taking styles and techniques from around the world and pairing them with the amazing native ingredients found in their own back yard.
