This Saturday, members of American Solera’s Society will be able to pick up the brewery’s newest stout.
Vanilla Coffee Life’s Distraction is a 16 percent ABV imperial milk stout aged in Blue Corn whiskey barrels and conditioned on vanilla beans as well as Cirque Rigoberto Herrera “XO” coffee sourced from Caicedonia, Colombia. The new stout is an exclusive release for members of the Tulsa, Okla.-based brewery’s American Solera Society club, which debuted in 2016.
This is the first bottled variant of American Solera’s Life’s Distraction base barrel-aged imperial milk stout, which was sold as a member exclusive on July 10 packaged in 375ml bottles.
According to American Solera, Vanilla Coffee Life’s Distraction is packaged in 250ml bottles ($20)—the smallest bottles the brewery has ever used—with 500 bottles available and was sold exclusively to members earlier today with a one bottle per person purchase limit.
Any remaining bottles are scheduled to be sold exclusively to members at the brewery’s River West location on Dec. 22, with each member again limited to one extra bottle.
