According to a label filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), AleSmith Brewing Co. is working on releasing Islander Joy Speedway Stout, a 13 percent ABV imperial stout that has been aged in bourbon barrels with double coconut, double vanilla beans and Vietnamese coffee. A version of the stout debuted as a draft-only option in 2017, but this will be the first time it has been packaged.
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.
Islander Joy 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 in 2017.
An email sent to the brewery for additional information was not immediately returned.
