Two of the most anticipated seasonals from Oskar Blues Brewery now have a release date, and one of them will be available nationwide.
The beers are the 2017 incarnations of Java Barrel-Aged Ten Fidy and Barrel-Aged Ten Fidy, both of which come in at 12.9 percent ABV and are aged in a blend of barrels that previously held Buffalo Trace and Heaven Hill bourbon for a minimum of eight months. In addition, Java Barrel-Aged Ten Fidy is mixed with Hotbox Roasters cold brew made with a blend of Mexican and Brazilian coffee beans.
After years of being available as a draft-only option, this is the third year in a row that Barrel-Aged Ten Fidy is being released in cans by the Longmont, Colo.-based brewery, and the second year that Java Barrel-Aged Ten Fidy will be available in cans.
According to a post on Oskar Blues’ website, both Java Barrel-Aged Ten Fidy and Barrel-Aged Ten Fidy will be packaged in 19.2-ounce “stovepipe” cans ($12.50) and will have a 10 case and two case purchase limit respectively when they go on sale at the brewery’s Longmont, Colo. and Brevard, N.C. locations on Nov. 11. In addition, cans of Barrel-Aged Ten Fidy will be shipped to retailers in Oskar Blues’ nationwide distribution network.
