Future Mountain Let The Day Begin (2022)

Future Mountain

Published September 1, 2022

There can’t be too many beers that capture Melbourne and spring quite like Future Mountain’s Let The Day Begin. The beer is a collaboration with the coffee roasters at Collingwood's Everyday Coffee and sees the brewery and blendary select a single-origin bean to partner with a barrel-aged golden sour. For 2022, that chosen coffee was Gilberto Mejia, which is named for the small-scale farmer who grows those beans on his one-hectare farm in the Cajamarca region of Peru.

The coffee’s impact on the beer is a long way from the roasted espresso notes you’d find in a coffee stout, with it instead bringing floral, plum, crisp apple and further fruit flavours that continually build. Those intertwine with the golden sour's underlying stone fruit notes and peach and a mouth-coating tartness and smooth textural finish.
