One of The Bruery’s flagship barrel-aged stouts may soon be available in cans for the first time.
The beer in question is Black Tuesday 2019, a 19.4 percent ABV imperial stout aged in bourbon barrels for over a year. While the stout has been sold in 750ml bottles since it was first packaged, a label filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) indicates that the newest version of Black Tuesday will be packaged 16-ounce cans.
There have been a number of variants of the imperial stout since it was first released in 2009, including including Grey Monday, Mocha Wednesday, Chocolate Rain and Rum Barrel Black Tuesday, which as the name implies, is aged in rum barrels instead of bourbon barrels.
Although details for this year’s release of Black Tuesday have not yet been made public, the stout has historically been made available to members of the brewery’s various membership clubs in early October, with members of the public able to purchase a limited number of bottles soon after.
Last year, Black Tuesday 2018 was packaged in 750ml bottles ($29.99); the stout was made available to members of the brewery’s various membership clubs on Oct. 1 and was put up for sale at The Bruery’s webstore on Oct. 30, where there was a six bottle per person purchase limit.
