Riverworks Brewing, Pressure Drop Team on Mean Girls-Inspired Cereal Beer
Taking inspiration from Daniel Franzese’s Damien in the cult film Mean Girls, who famously said ‘you go Glen Coco,’ Riverworks Brewing and Pressure Drop Brewing have teamed up for the very first time to create Glen Cocoa, a 7.4% Imperial Chocolate Cream Porter brewed with Cocoa Puffs cereal. This imperial chocolate cream porter was brewed with Cocoa Puffs in the mash, lactose in the boil, and then was aged on cocoa nibs to create the perfect breakfast beer or midnight snack. Glen Cocoa is available on tap now at both Riverworks and Pressure Drop. Growler fills are available to go.

Both beers are available in 5oz., 12oz. and crowlers/growler fills to go. They’ve also recently tapped Pillow Top (7.8%), an all-Citra hopped Double IPA with a soft body and mouthfeel.
