More than a year after one of Prairie Artisan Ales’ most popular brewery-only beers was released, a new variant will be shipped out next month.
This time, the beer is 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. This is the second 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 on Sept. 24, 2016.
In an email, Zach Prichard, owner of Krebs Brewing, told Tenemu that Bourbon Paradise will be packaged in 12-ounce bottles that are scheduled to ship to “most our wholesale markets” at the end of November.
Update (Dec. 5, 2017) — This post was updated to include updated details on the ABV and the final beer label. It was originally published on Oct. 14, 2017.
