Cigar City Brewing has released the latest version of a popular stout that honors one of the best generals of World War II, and more bottles are on the way.
That beer is named Marshal Zhukov’s 2018, an 11.8 percent ABV Russian imperial stout brewed with English hops. The stout is named after the Russian general Gregory Zhukov and was first released by the Tampa, Fla.-based brewery in 2010.
Cigar City has sold a number of variants of Marshal Zhukov’s over the years, including Coconut Marshal Zhukov’s (11.2 percent ABV), Vanilla Hazelnut Marshal Zhukov’s Imperial Stout and Cognac Barrel-Aged Marshal Zhukov’s.
According to a post on Cigar City’s Instagram page, Marshal Zhukov’s 2018 will be packaged in 22-ounce bottles that are available at the brewery now, with bottles scheduled to hit retailers across “most” of the brewery’s distribution network “in the coming weeks.”
When reached by email, a representative for Cigar City declined to comment about the release.
