A new stout coming from Prairie Artisan Ales may look a bit familiar to fans.
That creation is named Weekend, a 13 percent ABV imperial stout brewed with cacao nibs, coconut and marshmallow. According to a label filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), the new beer will be packaged in 12-ounce bottles.
Both the Weekend moniker and the ingredient list have been released in beers bottled by Prairie before, albeit only in barrel-aged versions: 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.
