This year, you will be able to drink a new beer from The Lost Abbey to celebrate the Day of the Dead.
The San Marcos, Calif.-based brewery will be releasing My Black Parade, a 12.5 percent ABV blended bourbon barrel-aged strong ale brewed with cocoa nibs, vanilla beans and spices, including smoked chili and cardamom. According to a post on The Lost Abbey’s website, the new beer is inspired by “the profound flavors of Mexican Chocolate.”
“Continuing The Lost Abbey’s trend in being inspired by worldly religious-based stories, My Black Parade tells the story of unrequited love being remembered each year on Dia De Los Muertos,” reads the post. “A crowd of believers, that grows with each procession, making a yearly pilgrimage to an unmarked grave, waiting for true love to show up.”
My Black Parade will be packaged in 750ml bottles($41,) with only 60 cases produced.
The beers will sold through The Lost Abbey website starting at 12p.m. PST on Oct. 9, and there will be a limit of three bottles per person. Buyers will be able to pick their bottles on Oct. 29 and 30 at The Lost Abbey Tasting Room during regular business hours.
