Cigar City Endless Nameless

Going completely out on a limb here. Cigar City Endless Nameless, a future imperial stout aged in bourbon barrels, pays homage to Nirvana.

Let’s dig in. For those of you that don’t know, Endless Nameless is actually the hidden track on Nirvana’s Nevermind album, released in 1991. The last track “Something in the Way” ran a full 10 minutes, 29 seconds, with Endless Nameless appearing at 3:46.

As for the beer, Cigar City Endless Nameless as mentioned earlier, is an imperial Stout aged in bourbon barrels.

It could be something else entirely. Just like Ommegang’s new IPA.
