Bath brewery and coffee roaster team up to toast reopening of city bars with unique beer

April 16, 2021

The reopening of Bath’s hospitality industry is being celebrated with a special craft beer – the result of a unique partnership between a city-based brewery and café and coffee roaster.

Electric Bear Brewery and Mokoko Café’s Mokoko Chocolata beer will make its debut this evening at the brewery’s tap room on Brassmill Lane when its outdoor seating area opens up. 

The two businesses selected Brazilian coffee Vargem Grande to bolster and accentuate the chocolate and caramel flavours of the beer. 

Electric Bear tap room manager Will Bryant described Mokoko Chocolata, which has an ABV of 5.2%,  as “a velvety smooth beer, that’s topped off with a light dose of vanilla which brings out the sweetness”.

He added: “I’m sure our craft-beer fans will think this one is a winner. It’s great for two hospitality businesses to come to together and create something positive from the pandemic.  

“Mokoko Café is renowned for their coffee roasting and we’re known for making craft beer – it’s a perfect partnership.”

The tap room, which has been closed since early December, will also use its open sessions to promote Bath street food traders, kicking off with Jikoni East African serving traditional and inspired dishes from Kenya, Ethiopia, Somalia and Tanzania.  

Electric Bear, which calls itself a “fiercely independent craft brewery”, was founded in 2015. Its mission is to produce consistently great tasting beers of all styles, from easy-drinking pales, hoppy IPAs, high strength stouts and inspiring sours.  

The tap room plans to open every Friday between 5pm and 10pm, Saturdays from 2pm to 10pm and Sundays 2pm-6pm. Tables will be given on a first-come, first-served basis.
