Acoustic Sets & Coffee Beers is now a weekly event in our taproom! Every Wednesday, we’ll be tapping multiple coffee infused and flavored beers, our own as well as from fantastic guest breweries, while some of Dayton’s most talented and melodic strum and sing for your pleasure. Check for updates here on which beers will be tapped and which musicians will be appearing. It’s that classic, intimate cafe experience. Toxic style.

This morning South Park’s Ghostlight Coffee becomes the first Dayton beanery to put cold-brew coffee on draft. A concept borrowed from the bar rooms, the tap injection of nitrous oxide that gives beer a smoother, creamier feel (as opposed to typical carbonation which adds fizz and bubbles) and apparently it does the same for coffee.
A growing trend, started in Seattle, Ghostlight owner Shane Anderson shares he’s “the 2nd Ohio location to bring in a kegerator to offer the Cold Brew, which comes out like a Guinness. It’s going to take a little time to get the brew exactly right, but we’re excited to introduce this concept. Down the road I’m looking forward to experimenting with ciders and more.” In a town that’s welcomed the microbreweries with open arms, coffee from a tap just seems a natural! Just think about it, you can grab a growler of coffee for the morning and then a locally made IPA for an early evening treat.
Here’s a California coffee shops explanation of the process:
