This Thing Now: Stumptown Nitro Cold Brew Coffee In A Can

This Thing Now: Stumptown Cold Brew in a Can

We're pretty obsessed with This Thing Now. Here's how to get it into your life.

The days are getting longer, you don't (always) need to bring your coat and flowers are blooming. This can only mean one thing: It's officially cold brew season.

For some, it's as simple as pouring hot coffee over ice and walking out the door. The adventurous addict may be so inclined to try an espresso tonic. In between lie all sorts of variations of cold brewing methods, steeping times and shiny packages, but most end up not being too memorable.

Enter Stumptown's Nitro Cold Brew—in a can ($5.50). You'll find the same delicious Stumptown profile—but what's great about this can of caffeine is its texture. Because it uses the same canning method as a stout-style beer, you end up with a creamy-smooth mouthfeel and the eye-catching cascading effect when you pour it into a glass. Also, unlike most cold brews you find in stores, this isn't a high-octane concentrate, so there's no need to dilute it with water or ice.

These canned beauties are flying off the shelves, so grab them when you see them at a Stumptown café or select retailers—and make them your companion for everything from summer road trips to barbecues.
