Blue & Gold Brewing announces first coffee offerings in new partnership with Stone Creek Coffee

Blue & Gold Brewing LLC, a student-run business venture launched as part of an undergraduate applied learning program in the College of Business Administration, is releasing its first coffee products in a recently formed partnership with Stone Creek Coffee, just in time for the holiday season.

Three coffee blends — light, medium and dark roasts — will be available for purchase through a limited-edition holiday box:

  • “Jesuit Joe,” a dark roast, will also be Blue & Gold’s first year-round product. Jesuit Joe was originally roasted for the Marquette community in 2012; it has been enhanced for Blue & Gold.
  • “Brew the Difference” is Blue & Gold’s limited-edition light roast.
  • “Santa’s Revenge,” Stone Creek’s annual medium roast Christmas offering, will be packaged with Blue & Gold branding.

Blue & Gold Brewing LLC was launched in 2022 as a first-of-its-kind pilot program with four undergraduate students chosen to lead a student-run venture. That first team released ’77 Golden Ale, a private label, Marquette-affiliated craft beer for National Marquette Day 2023. The coffee partnership with Stone Creek was announced in June, giving Blue & Gold its second team and a year-round product line.

Students on the Blue & Gold teams are involved in every aspect of the business, leading market research, product selection and naming, supply chain and logistics, finance, graphic design, advertising, marketing, distribution, and entrepreneurial/start-up processes. Revenue from product sales will be split among the student-run venture and the industry partners, with proceeds benefitting Marquette’s student-run ventures program.

Only 600 boxes are available for purchase. Order yours today!
