Three Taverns Departed Spirit Coming to Bottles

Three Taverns Strong Beer 2015

Three Taverns Departed Spirit will be the brewery’s next bottle release in April. The base beer is Three Taverns Theophan the Recluse Imperial Stout the brewery aged in bourbon barrels.

Departed Spirit recently took first in Atlanta’s Secret Stash Bash in March. Above, oran Van Ginderacther and brewery founder Brian Purcell celebrate the top spot.

Beer Street Journal sampled Three Taverns Departed Spirit this week, and can safely say, we are excited. The beer has a great bourbon to stout balance. The barrels don’t over power the greatness that Theophan the Recluse is.

Expect Three Taverns Departed Spirit in 750ml bottles in late April. The artwork will remember Heavy Bells, their bourbon barrel quad.
