One of Prairie Artisan Ales most popular creations of 2020 is getting a barrel-aged variant.
According to a label filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), the beer ins question is Bourbon Barrel-Aged Weekend, a 14.2 percent ABV imperial stout brewed with cacao nibs, toasted coconut, vanilla and “marshmallow flavor” that will be packaged in 12-ounce bottles.
As the name suggests, the base beer is Prairie’s Weekend, a 13 percent ABV imperial stout brewed with cacao nibs, coconut and marshmallow that was released earlier this year.
Both the Weekend moniker and the ingredient list have been released in barrel-aged beers bottled by Prairie before: the first was in July 2019, when the brewery released Pirate Weekend, a rum barrel-aged imperial stout conditioned on chocolate, coconut and marshmallows. That release was followed by Holiday Weekend, a bourbon barrel-aged stout conditioned on cacao nibs, cinnamon, coconut and marshmallow that was sold in November of last year.
An email sent to the brewery for additional information was not immediately returned. In addition, while the beer label attached to this story is the label that was approved by TTB, Prairie frequently changes the final designs of labels before the beers are released to market.
