For the fourth year in a row, Phantom Carriage Brewing and Blendery is releasing a beer to commemorate a famous actor.
As with previous incarnations, Lugosi 2018 is a 12.2 percent ABV sour quadruple ale aged in oak barrels with brettanomyces, lactobacillus and pediococcus. The Halloween-themed beer debuted in 2015 and pays tribute to the late actor Bela Lugosi, famous for playing the lead role in the classic 1931 film Dracula.
According to a press release, Lugosi 2018 will be packaged in 500ml waxed bottles ($20) and will have a six bottle per person purchase limit with only 100 cases available when it is released at the brewery on Oct. 26. In addition, five cases will be held back to be sold online starting on Oct. 27, “depending on availability and demand.”
