Westbrook 6th Anniversary Hazelnut Chocolate Imperial Stout is on the way. Another for the dessert beer category.
This release is pretty straight forward. The Mount Pleasant, South Carolina based brewery created an imperial stout brewed with hazelnuts, cocoa nibs, vanilla beans, and candi sugar. (We are assuming the candi sugar is just to boost the alcohol by volume.) Your dessert beer is served.
Birthdays beer is how famed Mexican Cake got its start. Brewed to celebrate a big milestone, only to become an annual release. (Now with barrel-aged variants.) Last year’s edition, 5th Anniversary Chocolate Raspberry Imperial Stout is a 10.5% alcohol by volume imperial stout featured raspberries, vanilla beans and cocoa nibs.
Our 6th Anniversary beer is a rich and chocolatey imperial stout matured on cocoa nibs, roasted hazelnuts and vanilla beans.
Westbrook 6th Anniversary Hazelnut Chocolate Imperial Stout will be a 22 ounce bottle release.
Westbrook Whiskey Sour Weisse Weisse Baby is now available. A new spin on the brewery’s berliner weisse.
The creation Westbrook Whiskey Sour Weisse Weisse Baby requires lemons. Bourbon barrels. And more lemons (besides the base berliner weisse).
Stop! Commence the sippin’ Westbrook is back with a brand new invention with this not-so-traditional twist on our German-style Berliner Weisse. We take our regular Weisse Weisse Baby base beer and age in in bourbon barrel, then infuse it with fresh lemons before bottling.
Other iterations of Weisse include Lemon Coconut, and upcoming Blueberry. Westbrook Whiskey Sour Weisse Weisse Baby is a 22 ounce bottle release.

One thing is for sure, the brewery love their birthday releases. That’s where Westbrook Mexican Cake got its start. Westbrook 5th Anniversary Chocolate Raspberry Imperial Stout is a 10.5% alcohol by volume imperial stout, brewed with raspberries, vanilla beans and coco nibs.
We’re talking boozy dessert here.
A couple of tasting notes to throw at you. After drinking this one last night, a few of the Beer Street Journal readers mentioned waiting/cellaring before trying this beer. Essentially hoping an aspect of the beer (like the raspberries) would fade a bit from the flavor…. At this point, you don’t really want this beer do you? The beer you have in your fridge right now is exactly as the brewery intended it. So… drink in the boozy bit of berry laden deliciousness in front of you. Don’t wait.
