The newest creation from Bottle Logic Brewing is a barrel-aged version of a stout originally inspired by the flavors found in the Snickers candy bar.
That beer is Gap Year 2020, a 14.29 percent ABV sweet stout brewed with lactose before being aged for one year in bourbon barrels and conditioned on Ecuadorian cacao nibs and peanuts. The base beer is the Anaheim, Calif.-based brewery’s Study Break, a 10 percent ABV sweet stout brewed with cacao nibs, peanuts and lactose.
According to Bottle Logic, Gap Year 2020 will be packaged in 500ml bottles ($24.95) and interested parties will have the chance to order tickets redeemable for bottles on Dec. 9 via Eventbrite with a purchase limit to be announced that morning. 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.
