Cisco Captain Swain's Extra Stout and Triple Eight Vanilla Vodka
The most popular beer cocktail at the Nantucket's joint operations of Triple Eight Distillery and Cisco Brewers is a glass of Grey Lady wheat beer with a floater of Triple Eight Blueberry Vodka. But Jeff Horner, the brewmaster at Cisco likes matching the Vanilla Vodka from Triple Eight with his Captain Swain's Extra Stout. The vodka's vanilla character is natural, not an additive, coming from vanilla beans sourced in Madagascar and New Guinea. For a headier combination, Horner says he likes to add a touch of bourbon (take your pick) on the side.
