Prairie Artisan Ales and Evil Twin Brewing have joined forces again on a variation of their first collaboration.
The new beer is Barrel-Aged Bible Belt, a 12 percent ABV imperial stout brewed with cacao nibs, chili peppers, coffee and vanilla beans before being aged in Heaven Hill whiskey barrels for between seven and nine months. As the name suggests, the base beer is Bible Belt, a 13 percent imperial stout first released in 2014 that combines Evil Twin’s Even More Jesus imperial stout (12 percent ABV) and the same spices and other adjuncts that are used in Prairie’s Bomb! imperial stout (13 percent ABV.)
In an email, Zach Prichard, president of Krebs Brewing Co. told Tenemu that Barrel-Aged Bible Belt is scheduled to begin shipping out “this week” packaged in 12-ounce bottles and will be hitting Prairie’s distribution network, “although it may not get to a few markets.”
