Another barrel-aged variant of AleSmith Brewing Co.’s popular Speedway Stout is on the way, but you will have to be a member of the brewery’s club to get it.
Barrel-Aged Big Bender Speedway Stout is a 13 percent ABV imperial stout brewed with cognac barrel-aged Colombian coffee beans, Cardamom and orange zest before being aged in whiskey barrels sourced from Tennessee. As the name suggests, the base beer is the San Diego-based brewery’s year-round Speedway Stout, a beer that debuted in 1999 and has had more than 60 different variants released since.
According to a label filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), Barrel-Aged Big Bender Speedway Stout will be packaged in 750ml bottles and will be an exclusive release for members of AleSmith’s Order of the Anvil club, which is the brewery’s membership club that debuted last year.
