Two of Prairie Artisan Ales’ most famous stouts are getting brand new variants, but you will have to visit one of the brewery’s two locations to get them.
The first new beer will be Apple Brandy Paradise, a 14 percent ABV imperial stout aged in apple brandy barrels for approximately 10 months and conditioned on both toasted coconut and vanilla.
This will be the third incarnation of the brewery’s Paradise imperial stout (13 percent ABV) to be released after Pirate Paradise, a 13 percent ABV imperial stout aged in rum barrels and conditioned on coconut and vanilla was released in 2016 and Bourbon Paradise, a 16 percent ABV imperial stout aged in bourbon barrels that previously held Heaven Hill bourbon for between six and eight months and conditioned on both coconut and vanilla was released in November 2017.
In addition, Prairie will be releasing Apple Brand Bomb!, a 14.5 percent ABV imperial stout conditioned on coffee, cocao nibs, vanilla beans and chili peppers that has been aged in apple brandy barrels for approximately 10 months. The new beer is the newest variant of the brewery’s Bomb! imperial stout, which has also included such releases as Pirate Bomb!, Christmas Bomb! and four different versions of Deconstructed Bomb!
In an email and in a Facebook post, Zach Prichard owner of Krebs Brewing, told Tenemu that both Apple Brandy Paradise and Apple Brandy Bomb! will be packaged in 12-ounce bottles ($12) with no purchase limits that are scheduled to be released on Oct. 4 exclusively at Prairie’s Prairie 345 and Prairie OKC facilities and that the brewery anticipates there will be “plenty of beer to last through the weekend.”
Prichard also indicated that the newest release of the brewery’s Apple Brandy Noir would be on sale at the same time, although that beer will be distributed exclusively in Prairie’s home state of Oklahoma after the brewery release.
