Every member of Firestone Walker Brewing Co.’s Proprietor’s Vintage Series will be sold in smaller bottles in 2017, with the first one scheduled to be released early next month.
According to labels filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) and the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC), both Parabola imperial stout (14.5 percent ABV) and Bravo barrel-aged imperial brown ale (13.5 percent ABV) will be packaged in 12-ounce bottles for the first time. While Parabola has historically been sold in 22-ounce bottles, this will be the first time that Bravo has been packaged.
The Proprietor’s Vintage Series includes:
- Parabola — Russian imperial stout (14.5 percent ABV)
- Stickee Monkee — central coast quadrupel (13.4 percent ABV)
- Velvet Merkin — barrel-aged oatmeal stout (8.5 percent ABV)
- Helldorado — imperial blonde ale (13.2 percent ABV)
- Bravo — barrel-aged imperial brown ale (13.5 percent ABV)
- Twenty — oak-aged ale (13 percent ABV)
Earlier this month, Firestone Walker announced that Sucaba, a 13.4 percent ABV English barleywine which debuted as part of the Proprietor’s Vintage Series in 2008, is not being released this year so that the brewery can introduce a new beer on Feb. 4. That beer turned out to be Bravo, which will be released on Feb. 4 at the brewery priced at $9.99 per 12-ounce bottle before being distributed across the county starting the following week.
Update (Jan. 23, 2017) — This post was updated to include details on the pricing, bottle size and release date for Bravo. It was originally published on Jan. 22, 2017.
