A barrel-aged variant of AleSmith Brewing Co.’s most popular stout is returning this year.
According to labels filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau’s (TTB), the San Diego-based brewery is working on once again releasing Barrel-Aged Speedway Stout 2020, a 14.4 percent ABV Russian imperial stout brewed with coffee and aged in bourbon barrels for “an extended period of time.”
The new incarnation will once again be part of AleSmith’s Anvil & Stave Barrel Series, which is named after the Anvil & Stave blending bar located inside of the brewery that opened its doors in 2016.
The barrel-aged stout is one of more than 60 different variants that use AleSmith’s Speedway Stout as its base and was historically packaged in 750ml bottles before last year when it was sold in 330ml bottles for the first time, an option that is continuing this year.
An email sent to the brewery for additional information was not immediately returned.
