A new creation from The Bruery was aged in not one, not two, but four different types of barrels.
That beer is Still Vindictive, a 15.8 percent ABV imperial stout conditioned on Paso Robles Malbec grapes sourced from The Fableist and aged in both American and French oak puncheons as well as apple brand barrels and bourbon barrels “for over 18 months” before being packaged in 750ml bottles.
The base stout is The Bruery’s Black Tuesday, a 19.4 percent ABV imperial stout aged in bourbon barrels for over a year that debuted in 2009.
As the name suggests, the new release is a variant of the Placentia, Calif.-based brewery’s Vindictive, a 14.9 percent ABV imperial stout that was fermented with grape must and aged in oak barrels.
In an email, Daniel Munoz, head of marketing at The Bruery, told Tenemu that Still Vindictive will be an exclusive release for members of its Reserve and Horders Societies when it is released “next week.”
