River North Brewery is bringing back one of its most popular beers, but in a smaller size.
The beer is B’side Avarice, a 10.8 percent ABV imperial stout brewed with coffee sourced from Logan House Coffee Co. in Denver before being aged in rye whiskey barrels for one year. In addition, the new stout was brewed in collaboration with Mr. B’s Wine & Spirits in Denver, which is also one of the only two places the beer will be available.
B’side Avarice was released once before in 2014, although that incarnation was packaged in 22-ounce bottles.
According to Patrick Annesty, marketing director at River North, the new version of B’side Avarice will be packaged in 375ml bottles and will be sold at both Mr. B’s Wine & Spirits as well as at the brewery. In an email, Annesty told Tenemu that while no release date has been set yet, 60 cases of the bottles should be ready in “about a month.”
