FiftyFity Brewing Co.
In 2007, the Eclipse line from FiftyFifty Brewing Co. began humbly enough, an imperial stout aged in Old Fitzgerald barrels before being bottled and sold with little fanfare. Only seven years later, there are a multitude of different variants, each aged in different barrels and each with its own specific profile.

In this day and age, if a brewery produces an imperial stout it's a virtual given that it will release a barrel-aged version of that beer at some point in the future. Some breweries choose barrels from a favored vintner or distiller and apply a single barrel treatment to their beer roughly once a year. Others vary their suppliers, effectively creating a new beer for consumers whether it be an annual release or part of a running line of limited edition brews. In the case of the FiftyFifty Brewing Co., they've made a yearly event out of aging their popular Imperial Eclipse Stout in multiple barrels for a simultaneous release in 22-ounce bottles.
