Ozark Beer Co.’s most popular beer is turning five years old and is being released this weekend, but there will be more than ever to go around.
That beer is Bourbon Double Cream Stout 2019—or BDCS, as it is commonly known in the craft beer community—a 10.3 percent ABV imperial milk stout aged for more than seven months in bourbon barrels. First brewed in 2014 and debuting in 12-ounce cans in 2015, the stout is fermented in steel tanks before being aged in bourbon barrels that each held Kentucky bourbon.
While last year’s release was sold at the brewery along with a very limited distribution, Ozark has increased the amount being released, and thus has added a number of new pick up options. This includes events on Thursday and Friday that have already sold out, as well as a public online sale that interested parties can purchased at this website.
Tickets for that public sale cost $50.81 and includes two four-packs of BDCS 2019, with each person limited to one allotment, although each person may also serve as a proxy for two other people who can purchase the same amount. Purchasers can then choose a pickup date at the brewery between March 23 and March 30 during regular business hours.
According to a post on Ozark’s website, four-packs of BDCS 2019 will see distribution throughout Arkansas in “early April.”
