Fans may find the particulars of the new base barleywine familiar, after Bottle Logic and Redlands, Calif.-based Ritual Brewing Co. released Arcane Rituals 2019 last year, a 13.59 percent ABV English barleywine-style ale that was also brewed with Chevallier Heritage malt before being aged in a combination of bourbon, brandy, and VSOP cognac barrels.
According to Bottle Logic, Intrepid Orchid will be packaged in 500ml bottles ($23.95) and interested parties will have the chance to order tickets redeemable for bottles on May 24 via Eventbrite with a purchase limit to be announced at a later date. In addition, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Bottle Logic is allowing proxies for this release as long as the proxy’s name and information is added at the time the tickets for the beers are purchased.
