Starbucks just debuted a new drink this month called an Espresso Cloud IPA, it’s a beer with a shot of espresso in it. They’ve been selling beer and wine at several locations for about two years as part of their “Starbucks Evenings” menu. They’ve had coffee-flavored beer for a while, but apparently this is the first time they’ve combined the two. You don’t actually drop the shot in like you do with a Jägerbomb or a boilermaker though. They take an IPA, pour a chilled shot of orange-and-vanilla-flavored espresso in, then top it with froth like a cappuccino. You can go to their website and find the closest store that’s selling it.
