Beer of the Week: Unknown Brewing, "Kitten Snuggles"
Jun 09, 2018
You know that bright, happy feeling you get when you cuddle a cat? That's basically what Unknown Brewing "Kitten Snuggles" tastes like—and you can ACTUALLY snuggle kittens while you drink it when you order it at Daily Mews Cat Café on Monroe Road.
Read on to learn more about this feline-inspired beer, the cat café and boutique where you can order a can of it, and the fitness activities they've got to offer Charlotte's active beer (and cat) lovers.
The Beer: "Kitten Snuggles:
This feline-inspired beer is an imperial farmhouse ale brewed with milk sugar, fuzzy apricots, and catnip flowers. The flavor profile is apricot-forward with a creamy mouthfeel (and a grassy finish thanks to the catnip). We can promise the 9% ABV brew will drive both you and your cat crazy*--but in very different ways. And here's the kicker: you can drink Kitten Snuggles while snuggling actual kittens at the Daily Mews Cat Café and Boutique on Monroe Road.
*We do not recommend that you actually let your cat drink this beer. But we do recommend that you take photos of your cat with this beer and tag @workforyourbeer and @dailymewscharlotte.
The Daily Mews Cat Cafe & Boutique
When you first walk through its doors, you'll notice that the Daily Muse Cat Café & Boutique is a fun and relaxing environment where you can order coffee, tea, wine, beer, and local pastries. But step in just a little further and you'll see that you can also hang out with your drink in the cat lounge, where they have more than a dozen loving, adoptable kitties for you to play with while you enjoy your beverage of choice. Pro tip: They've got $4 "meow-mosas" on Sundays!
Reservations are recommended, since the lounge fills up quickly. You can make your reservation here. (Note that your entry fee pays for cat food, litter, maintenance, and other costs of providing high quality care for the adoptable cats on the premises!)
Aside from playing with kitties in the café and lounge, you can also check out the boutique full of awesome gifts for cats and cat-lovers alike.
