Stone Depth-Charged Double Bastard, with Espresso

Stone Depth Charged Double Bastard

Stone Depth-Charged Double Bastard. A version of the American strong ale, with espresso beans.

Pretty straight forward right? In true arrogant fashion, the bastard calls out your Starbucks laptop habits.

So, your knowledge of caffe is such that you have correctly determined that the term “depth-charged” refers tot he addition of espresso-roasted coffee beans. Well, bully for you For all I know, you picked that up hanging out at some coffee megachain amid a microcosmic mishmash of vapid layabouts, metro—hipsters, and laptop—sporting exhibitionists trying to convince the world (and themselves) that they’re click—clacking out the great American—novel—cum—screenplay for a future summer blockbuster. I could surely teach you a they or two were I inclined…which For I’m NOT. Perhaps you’re eyeing my backside because you’re really into coffee. Nothing wrong there, but if you’ve come to me expecting some beery incarnation of your security blanket “me time” soyfrappelatti or similarly deity concoction, you’re in for some granite—sized disappointment. I do not exist to provide merely a comforting mode of conveyance for your jittery, caffeiuted futasies. Nothing about me is smooth, subtle or hat for comfort Those who should he holding this bottle (el route to opening and indulging in what awaits within) are really into NE. Get your cionanmenrochaccino fix elsewhere. This hue’s strictly for adult mm and women who don’t require the culinary crutch of added fat and sweeteners. My motto. Bold and brave or lot at all.

Stone Depth-Charged Double Bastard will be a 22 ounce bottle offering. The brewery has not yet announced this offering.

Style: American Strong Ale (w/ Espresso Coffee)
Availability: 22oz Bottles, Draft.
Release: TBA

Victory Headwaters Ale Cans, September

Victory Headwaters Cans

Victory Brewing Company (Downingtown, PA) has rolled out their first canned offerings this year. First, was Summer Love (a late spring-summer seasonal.)

Victory Headwaters Ale is coming in September, a beer that raises the awareness of beer’s key ingredient – water. Interesting to note, this can art removes the pale ale mention, plus the description is little different.

This crisp and aromatically arousing session ale integrates a supportive malt base with herbal hop complexity, offering lemon notes and tea-like earthiness.

The canning line is a part of Victory’s production expansion in Parkesburg, Pennsylvania. Victory Headwaters Pale Ale is a 12 ounce can offering.

Orpheus Barrel Aged Sykophantes, September 3rd

Orpheus Barrel Aged Sykophantes

Orpheus Barrel Aged Sykophantes will be available in bottles on September 3rd. This will be the Atlanta, Georgia’s 3rd bottle release.

Orpheus Barrel Aged Sykophantes is the brewery’s fig sour, aged in cognac barrels. Regular Orpheus Sykophantes has previously been released.

In ancient Greece, “showing the fig” was a vulgar hand gesture, and Sykophantes means “one who shows the fig”. Earthy and full of dark fruit flavor from hundreds of pounds of figs and dark candy syrup, but with a sourness that cuts the gentle sweetness, Sykophantes is our fall beer.

Orpheus Barrel Aged Sykophantes will be available in 22 ounce bottles on September 3rd, along with Orpheus The 12th Labor (bourbon barrel aged imperial stout). The brewery’s first bottle also released this month, Wandering Blues.

Style: American Wild/Sour Ale (w/ Figs, Candi Sugar. Barrel Aged. Cognac.)
Availability: 22oz Bottles. Draft. Limited Release.
Release: 9/3/15
