For the past four years, Weyerbacher Brewing Co. has released Sunday Morning Stout for fans in February, but that streak is ending in 2019.
According to a press release, the Easton, Pa.-based brewery has decided to not release the 12.7 percent ABV bourbon barrel-aged imperial coffee stout in order to give it “a little bit of a break.” The imperial stout debuted in 2015 and has been a seasonal release since then packaged in four-packs of 12-ounce bottles.
However, Weyerbacher is giving fans something to look forward to: the brewery will instead be releasing Chocolate Pretzel Sunday Morning Stout, a “barrel-aged coffee beast” brewed with cocoa nibs, cocoa powder, lactose and unrefined sea salt. The variant was first released as a draft-only option in mid-2018, but this is the first time being packaged.
According a press release on Weyerbacher’s website, Chocolate Pretzel Sunday Morning Stout is scheduled to be released in mid-March packaged in 16-ounce cans at both of the brewery’s Tap Room locations in Easton and New Hope as well as throughout its distribution network.
