For Bottle Logic Brewing, space is not the final frontier.
The Anaheim, Calif.-based brewery will be releasing Space Trace, a 11.1 percent ABV imperial stout brewed with cocoa nibs and coconut before being aged in bourbon barrels. The “German chocolate cake inspired stout” was first released as a draft-only option earlier this year, but this is the first time it has been packaged.
