A BEER and coffee festival will be held next month to celebrate a thirst-quenching collaboration.

Husband and wife duo Suzy and Alex Carrington, who co-founded Carrington’s Coffee Co in 2019, have teamed up with Morecambe's Accidental Brewery for the event at their Carnforth roastery to mark the creation of a coffee-inspired stout.

The Non-Barista Stout used Carrington’s house roast ‘Doghouse’ during the brewing process, combining ‘inventive’ techniques to achieve the best coffee extraction and flavour to infuse with the beer.

Alex from Carrington’s joined Mike from Accidental Brewery to brew the coffee stout.

He said: “There are so many similarities between coffee roasting and beer brewing but a job I really don't envy and first pointed out by Mike, is the never-ending cleaning, shovelling, and washing up!

“It was great to collaborate, and we couldn't leave it at that, so we decided to host a mini-festival at our coffee roastery. Having a factory and event space is something that breweries have been able to do for a while and we've created an inviting, community-focused space at Carrington’s Coffee Co."
