Southern Tier Brewing Co. will soon be releasing a new beer in its Blackwater Series.
Nitro Hot Chocolate is a 10 percent ABV imperial milk stout brewed using Columbus hops, with cocoa powder, chocolate, and marshmallow flavors added. The new beer will be packaged in cans that include an integrated technology to release nitrogen when opened instead of the more common carbon dioxide.
In an email, a spokesperson for Southern Tier also confirmed that Nitro Hot Cocoa will be released in four-packs of 12-ounce cans ($12.99), which will contain 9.6-ounces of liquid due to the integration of the nitro technology in each can. The cans are currently scheduled to be shipped across the brewery’s distribution network in January.
