(San Diego, CA) – AleSmith Brewing Co. announced an upcoming pre-sale for Double Barrel Speedway Stout this week. Double Barrel Speedway Stout is an “Imperial Stout with Coffee Aged in Bourbon Barrels and Port Barrels (ABV 13%).”
The online pre-sale begins at this link on Monday, August 14th at 11am PT. For full details on how purchasing works, please visit that link.
Per the brewery, “This variation of Speedway Stout has gone through two different maturations in two types of oak barrels to develop its complex flavor profile. The extended aging period in freshly used bourbon barrels helped the beer develop rich notes of vanilla, caramel, and oak. The beer’s aging process in Portuguese port barrels added notes of raisin and plum, as well as wine-like tannins. The beer was also combined with locally roasted coffee to further balance its profile of chocolate and roasted malts.”
The cost of each bottle is $40.86 after fees and taxes ($35 before taxes) and the limit is two bottles per person.
Locals can get in on the fun early by attending AleSmith’s 22nd anniversary party on Saturday, August 12th.
