Just in time to help stave off the summer heat, Starbucks is debuting a nitro cold brew. Following the success of last year’s regular cold brew — a move that increased sales of iced beverages by 20 percent, reports USA Today — the coffee giant announced Tuesday that its newest drink will be sold in more than 500 stores by the end of summer, including locations in Seattle, Portland, New York, Chicago, Boston, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

“Nitro Cold Brew will redefine the way you think about cold coffee, infusing Starbucks Cold Brew with nitrogen to deliver a smooth and creamy sweetness, plus the texture and body you’d expect from a draught beer,” a Starbucks spokesperson told TIME in a statement.

The on-tap coffee will be added to the menu alongside Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew — cold brew topped with house-made vanilla sweet cream.
