Avery Brewing’s Tweak, you might know by another name –Meph Addict. The name (referencing Mephistopheles) was changed because it sounded a little too close to a recreational drug you hopefully have never used. (Read the label description.)
Avery Tweak is Mephistopheles Imperial Stout, with a chunk of coffee thrown in. If you haven’t geeked out enough, the brewery aged in four months in bourbon barrels. Batch #2 is ready to as we kick off 2016. This edition a little boozier than Batch #1 (by more than 2% ABV).
Our very own Parker, of the cartoon cat loving variety, created this cult classic character back in our 17th season. Appearing in several episodes under another stage name that was deemed inappropriate, our executive producers and editors decided that a name change and further character development – a 4-month hiatus in bourbon barrels – were necessary to satisfy our more ardent and demanding viewers.
Batch No. 2 of Avery Tweak will be available in 12oz bottles in the tap room starting January 31st, 2016.
