9Bar is known for its wide selection of delicious drinks, but it’s most popular drink by far is its Nitro cold brew. The drink only adds nitrogen, unlike other systems commonly made by repurposing old beer kegs that add both nitrogen and carbon dioxide to the cold brew.

Made with a proprietary blend of Costa Rican, Maui, Kaua’I and Kenyan beans, the nitro brew offered at this local grub spot is multilayered in flavor – strong but mild – with hints of vanilla and chocolate.

The Curb Kaimiki uses the toddy system to create a cold brew by steeping the grinds for 16 to 18 hours, and then infusing it with nitrogen. The coffee varies from day to day – taking you to a distinct region every time you stop by.

Brue Bar’s popular nitro cold brew is made from a blend of Guatemalan, Brazilian and Sumatran espresso beans. The grinds are steeped for 16 hours and then left in the keg for a week to infuse – resulting in a creamy, almost chocolate like drink served in a chilled glass.

For a smooth, full-flavored coffee that doesn’t break the bank, try this nitro cold-brew from Lion Coffee that uses a blend of beans from Central and South America and the Islands. It’s a smooth, full-flavored coffee with a smokiness that comes from the darker roast profile.
