Next week, American Solera will be releasing its most expensive beer to date.
Full Sized Candy Bar is a 14 percent ABV imperial stout aged in bourbon barrels for 18 months and conditioned on 500 pounds of toasted coconut before being bottled. According to the brewery, the new stout uses Life’s Distraction as its base, an 18 percent ABV barrel-aged imperial stout that was sold as a member exclusive in July 2018.
There have been a number of different Life’s Distraction variants released, including Single Malt Distraction, Vanilla Coffee Life’s Distraction, Dollar For Dollar, Purple Lemur and Double Purple Lemur.
According to American Solera, Full Sized Candy Bar is packaged in 500ml bottles ($40) and is on sale with a two bottle per person purchase limit to members of the brewery’s membership club now. Any unsold bottles out of the 800 total filled that remain after Oct. 20 will go on sale to the public on Oct. 23.
