Perennial Artisan Ales is releasing one of its most popular beers at the end of the month, along with two different variants.
The beer in question is Abraxas 2017, a 10 percent imperial stout brewed with ancho chili peppers, cacao nibs, cinnamon sticks and vanilla beans packaged in 750ml bottles. It was first released in bottles by the St. Louis, Mo.-based brewery in 2011, and has been a seasonal release since then.
In addition, the brewery will be releasing bottles of Coffee Abraxas 2017, a 10 percent ABV variation of Abraxas that is brewed with Ethiopia Hambela coffee from Sump Coffee of Saint Louis and Vanilla Abraxas 2017, which is being bottled for the first time.
According to a post on the brewery’s website, customers will be able to purchase a bundle package containing one Coffee Abraxas, one Vanilla Abraxas and two regular Abraxas for $100 plus fees via Eventbrite starting Oct. 16 at 10 a.m. CDT. In addition, unlike in previous years, the brewery is allowing proxies to pick up the beers.
The purchased bundle packages will then be available for pick up at the brewery on the following dates:
- Tuesday, Oct. 31 — 4-9 p.m.
- Wednesday, Nov. 1 —4-9 p.m.
- Thursday, Nov. 2 —4-9 p.m.
- Friday, Nov. 3 —4-9 p.m.
- Saturday, Nov. 4 — 12-9 p.m.
In addition, “a limited number” of regular Abraxas 2017 bottles will be available for purchase at Perennial beginning on Nov. 4 while bottles of Coffee Abraxas 2017 will be available for sale on Nov. 2 and Vanilla Abraxas 2017 bottles will be on sale on Oct. 31.
Finally, Abraxas 2017 will also be sent to retailers across Perennial’s distribution network starting the second week of November.
