This weekend, Bottle Logic Brewing is adding another release to its Stasis Project Series.
The beer is Stronger Than Fiction, a 14.2 percent ABV American strong ale that has been aged in bourbon barrels and conditioned on both coconut and coffee beans sourced from Coldbot Coffee in Orange, Calif. This is not the first time that Bottle Logic has used Coldbot coffee in one of its Stasis Project beers, as Ground State (12.5 percent ABV) also incorporates a blend of coffee from El Salvador and Guatemala from the company.
Stronger Than Fiction joins nine other beers in Bottle Logic’s Stasis Project Series, which “celebrates the barrel as a fifth ingredient:”
