In regards to the Stout release party on October 4th:
After SB 63 went into effect, SweetWater introduced a few tour options. Tour & Tasting, and Tour, Tasting, and Souvenir beer. (So did every Georgia brewery.)
Until the legalities are sorted out, SweetWater is going back to the pre-July 1st days, and the party will have one price for entry – $10. That includes a tour, free samples, tasting the Bourbon Barrel Aged Stout, S’mores bar, the Falcons game on TV, and the first 100 guests will get a stylin 16 oz Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout snifter.
Bottles will be available at retailers the next day, 10/5.
In the meantime, check out Beer Street Journal’s coverage of the DOR memo and issues surrounding the DOR activities.
About the beer…
SweetWater Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout bottles will be released Sunday, October 4th.
Aged 6 months in Jack Daniels, Old Forester, and Heaven Hills barrels, this sumptuous imperial has notes of chocolatey-bourbon goodness as a part of SweetWater’s big bottle Cork and Cage series.
SweetWater brewed up an original imperial stout recipe specifically developed for the bourbon barrels. After fermentation, the beer was transferred to the bourbon barrels and for 6 months. When the aging process was complete, the imperial stout was blended back together, and voila! SweetWater Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout was born.
SweetWater Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout will be available in 750 milliliter bottles.
