Bottling to occur in April, Avery Callipygian Barrel-Aged Stout features vanilla beans, cocoa nibs, cocoa, coffee, and bourbon barrel-aging.
No 35. She was twerking well before the word was in our vernacular. A true trailblazer. A mover and a shaker of monumental proportions. Our muse and inspiration for this full-bodied, bodacious , and well-rounded stout. You know we love big stouts and we cannot lie!
Avery Callipygian Barrel-Aged Stout will be a 12 ounce bottle offering. Limited as every release in the series.
Avery Brewing’s Tweak, you might know by another name –Meph Addict. The name (referencing Mephistopheles) was changed because it sounded a little too close to a recreational drug you hopefully have never used. (Read the label description.)
Avery Tweak is Mephistopheles Imperial Stout, with a chunk of coffee thrown in. If you haven’t geeked out enough, the brewery aged in four months in bourbon barrels. Batch #2 is ready to as we kick off 2016. This edition a little boozier than Batch #1 (by more than 2% ABV).
Our very own Parker, of the cartoon cat loving variety, created this cult classic character back in our 17th season. Appearing in several episodes under another stage name that was deemed inappropriate, our executive producers and editors decided that a name change and further character development – a 4-month hiatus in bourbon barrels – were necessary to satisfy our more ardent and demanding viewers.
Batch No. 2 of Avery Tweak will be available in 12oz bottles in the tap room starting January 31st, 2016.
Founders Sumatra Mountain Brown, is future bottle potential by the Grand Rapids, Michigan based brewery.
While this release doesn’t officially appear on the brewery’s release calendar, the brewery did mention a few new seasonals, appearing in May and fall, respectively. Founders Sumatra Mountain Brown has the look and feel of a beer from the brewery’s Backstage Series – Frangelic Mountain Brown Ale. While that edition was brewed with hazelnut coffee, this “mountain” brown ale is brewed with Sumatran coffee.
The is bold brown ale gets its body form a team of malts, including caramel malt for sweetness, flaked barley for dense foam, a bit of chocolate malt for color, and aromatic and munich malts for added depth. German and perle hops add a touch of bitterness to balance the sweetness. The addition of rich Sumatra coffee takes this perfectly balance brown ale to a decadent level.
Founders Sumatra Mountain Brown will be a 12 ounce bottle release. The brewery has not yet announced this offering.
