A brand new beer from American Solera is coming just in time for Christmas.
That creation is Barrel-Aged Full Sized Santa Claus, a 13 percent ABV imperial stout imperial stout aged in a blend of Single Malt and Blue Corn Balcones whiskey barrels for 11 months. The stout was also conditioned on a combination of chocolate, hazelnuts and vanilla beans before being packaged.
According to American Solera, Barrel-Aged Full Sized Santa Claus is packaged in 500ml bottles ($50) and is scheduled to be released to the public at the brewery on Dec. 19, with bottle limits set at the time of release based on the number of interested parties that show up.
In addition, members of the brewery’s Society are being given the chance to purchase one bottle per member at the same price.
