A popular incarnation of Alesmith Brewing Co.’s Speedway Stout is making the jump to bottles.
The beer is Nibs & Beans Speedway Stout, a 12 percent ABV imperial stout brewed with cacao nibs from Brazil and Madagascar, locally roasted Colombian coffee from Swell Coffee Co. and vanilla beans from both Madagascar and Papua New Guinea. The stout uses uses the San Diego-based brewery’s year-round Speedway Stout (12 percent ABV) as its base, a beer that was first released in 1999 and has had more than 60 different variants released since that year, including including Hammerhead Speedway Stout, Hawaiian Speedway Stout and Barrel-Aged Speedway Stout among others.
Nibs & Beans Speedway Stout was first released as a draft-only option for the brewery’s Speedway Grand Prix event.
According to filings with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), Nibs & Beans Speedway Stout will be packaged in 750ml bottles. An email sent to the brewery for additional information was not immediately returned.
