Gourmet Brew or Hangover Cure?
A beer flavored with coffee beans may serve as a hair-of-the-dog hangover aide or pick-me-up with a kick but that's not really its purpose says the award-winning maker Meantime Brewing.
Peter Haydon says the newly launched beer, on sale in supermarket J Sainsbury, is for winter tipplers seeking specialty strains.
"It's definitely an adult flavor," he told Reuters, adding the four-percent-strong beer is not for Britain's controversial teen' market for alcopops, or for clubbers downing double-hit cocktails such as the caffeinated soft drink Red Bull and vodka.
