13, August 2016: Darkness will fall on Madison, WI as K'Paui Coconut Porter makes its maiden voyage at The Great Taste of Midwest Beer Festival on August 13, 2016.
The new craft beer flavor by Bent Kettle Brewing is a Baltic style coconut porter reported to taste like a Mounds bar. The special advance preview taste test is available only to the beer festival attendees. The new craft beer named K'Paui has moved into the Bent Kettle mass production schedule with a planned release date of August 19th, 2016.
According to Bent Kettle founder and brew master Mark Cook, it "tastes like a dark chocolate Mounds bar in a glass but without all the extra sugar. People have been going wild for it at festivals."
They will be showcasing it next Saturday (8/13/16) at The Great Taste of the Midwest, which is the world's 2nd largest beer festival. All told, there will be about 10,000 people there. The official release date of K'Paui is August 19th and will be on tap at Mr. Brews Taphouse in Monona, WI for 6 days until Bent Kettle begins distribution of the special brew to other bars and restaurants. Cook says K'Paui in cans will be appearing in liquor stores before Labor Day weekend.
The Beer Festival Event is Organized by the Madison Homebrewers and Tasters Guild
The Madison Homebrewers and Tasters Guild are sponsoring the 30th edition of the Great Taste of the Midwest on August 13, 2016. The event is one of the premier craft brewery beer festivals in the USA and features more than 150 of the Midwest's finest craft brewers such as craft brewery Bent Kettle. The beer festival will be held at Olin Park, overlooking Lake Monona in Madison, Wisconsin.
The Madison Homebrewers and Tasters Guild is a not-for-profit organization, based in Madison Wisconsin, which was created "to aid and educate members in the appreciation and legal production of fermented malt beverages, including those brewed at home and those brewed commercially."
A lot of heart and effort goes into their beer festival event. They say they make it attractive to everyone involved, vendors and attendees but especially to craft beer devotees. Attendance is capped at 6000, and the number of brewers is usually a little over 100. Each summer attendees enjoy sampling some of the 600+ beers that are usually displayed.
