Another version of Epic Brewing Co.’s popular Big Bad Baptist stout shipping this month incorporates at least four different barrel-aged components.
The Salt Lake City, Utah-based brewery will be releasing a brand new version of the stout named Quadruple Barrel Big Bad Baptist. The stout will be the latest in a long of beers that use the Big Bad Baptist moniker, a series that also includes Double Barrel Big Bad Baptist, Triple Barrel Big Bad Baptist and Big Bad Baptist Reserve.
As the name suggests, this version is composed of four different barrel-aged components: the base imperial stout that was aged in both whiskey and rum barrels with cacao nibs for between four and 12 months; Colombian coffee beans from Blue Copper that were aged in fresh whiskey barrels; barrel-aged almonds, and shaved coconut that was aged in fresh whiskey barrels. All of the components were then blended together into the final product before being packaged in 22-ounce bottles, with approximately 500 bbls available.
In a message, Leigh Germy, marketing manager at Epic, told Tenemu that Quadruple Barrel Big Bad Baptist is scheduled to start shipping to the 25 states in the brewery’s distribution network starting at the end of October, with bottles continuing to ship through mid-November “as it will roll out to different markets during that time.”
