Saint Arnold Brewing Co. is commemorating 25 years in business next month by releasing a brand new blended beer made up of three recipes that originally appeared in either its Divine Reserve series or Bishop’s Barrel series, each of which were aged in bourbon barrels.
The aptly named Saint Arnold 25th Anniversary Grand Cru is a blend of three different bourbon barrel-aged beers: 50 percent Belgian-style quadrupel ale, 25 percent Russian imperial stout and 25 percent English-style barleywine. The resulting creation comes in at 11.1 percent ABV and is packaged in 12-ounce bottles.
“In the beer world, Grand Cru can have a couple of meanings depending on the origin of reference,” reads a post on Saint Arnold’s website. “For us, Grand Cru is a blend of some of our most cherished beers, with the hope of delivering a beer that is greater than the sum of its parts. We feel we’ve achieved exactly that.”
According to Saint Arnold, 25th Anniversary Grand Cru is scheduled to be released on June 3 and will also be available at the brewery’s 25th anniversary party on June 8.
An email sent to the brewery for additional information was not immediately returned.
