BridgePort Brewing Company's limited edition Cafe Negro was a porter infused with cold-brewed Sumatran coffee from World Cup Coffee. The local roaster concocted a unique origin coffee made specifically for Cafe Negro. At the time of its release in late 2010, state and federal organizations were mobilizing around dangers associated with alcoholic energy drinks. This lead to no small amount of consternation on the part of craft breweries interested in experimenting with coffee and beer. Subsequent warnings from the Food and Drug Administration exempted alcoholic beverages that contain caffeine as a natural constituent of one or more ingredients, leaving local breweries to continue combining two of Portland's favorite things: beer and coffee.
