Beer 101 – Imperial Pirate Coffee Black IPA

Keeping things local is important and it is what we do best, that is why we strive to offer a vast collection of local beers here at Charleston Beer Works.

This week we are highlighting the Imperial Pirate Coffee Black IPA. It is brewed locally at Fat Pig Brewing Company right here in Charleston, SC. Established just last year in 2014, Fat Pig is sure to impress and we are excited to see what they bring us next!

Country: United States
State: South Carolina
Style: India Pale Ale
Type: Black Pale Ale

Imperial Pirate Coffee Black IPA has plenty of roasty goodness that is balanced with bitterness from citra, simcoe, and mosaic hops. It is the double version of Fat Pig’s Pirate Coffee, containing 9.02% alcohol.

We recommend pairing this Black IPA with The Cheddar Jap Burger. A Black IPA pairs very well with spicy foods and this burger is known to kick it up a notch! Beef topped with Cheddar Cheese, Jalapenos, Red Onion and our spicy Burger Sauce will be the perfect match.
