Want to drink a cookie? Southern Tier Thick Mint can make that happen

Southern Tier Thick Mint bottle

Southern Tier Thick Mint, a new imperial stout by the New York based brewery, has shipped for the first time.

The brewery’s Blackwater Series is home to some of the most well known beers in the industry. Creme Brûlée, Choklat, & Mokah imperial stouts are just a few examples. Spring brings Girl Scout cookies, and Southern Tier has a perfect beer pairing.

Southern Tier Thick Mint mimics one of the most popular Girl Scout cookies out there, Thin Mints. (For some reason we always find them in people’s freezers.) The 10% alcohol by volume imperial stout is brewed with cocoa nibs and mint. Another dessert beer cometh.

If the past has taught us anything, it’s this. When Southern Tier makes a flavored imperial stout, flavor is what you are going to get. While Thick Mints is truly like drinking a cookie, the brewery showed enough restraint to where it pairs well with its inspiration, while being very drinkable on on its own.

We made big ways when we introduced Choklat in 2007. Since then, our affection for decadent, flavorful, dessert-like beers and a zeal to venture into the far corners of the flavor world, have been the drivers in our endless quest to brew the perfect indulgence.

Southern Tier Thick Mint is now available in 12 ounce bottles and draft.

Style: Imperial Stout (w/ Chocolate, Mint.)
Availability: 22oz Bottles, Draft.
Debut: March, 2017

Avery Certatio Equestris, modeled after a mint julep

Avery Certatio Equestris

Avery Certatio Equestris joins the brewery’s Barrel Aged Series on June 19th. Think of a popular bourbon drink when you wonder what this beer tastes like.

Avery Certatio Equestris is modeled after the ubiquitous mint julep. The base sour ale was aged in bourbon barrels with spearmint leaves (the key ingredient in the julep, after bourbon). You can probably imagine the result from here.

A mint julep is not the product of a formula — it is ceremony, and must be performed by a gentleman possessing a true sense of artistic, a deep reverence for the ingredients, and a proper appreciation of the occasion. It is a rite that must not be entrusted to a novice, a statistician, nor a Yankee.” – Henry Clay

Dang it! We were in there till the Yankee caveat.Pucker up, Buttercup!

Burnside Blueberry Mint Saison Kicks of Elemental Scale Series

Burnside Blueberry Mint Saison

Burnside Blueberry Mint Saison kicks of the new Elemental Scale Series of one-off beers from the Portland, Oregon brewery.

Burnside Blueberry Mint Saison is a French-style saison that has been brew kettle soured, and fermented with blueberries and local honey, plus mint tea.

Inspired by a Kombucha drink with a similar profile, Burnside’s brewers set out to create a refreshing but complex beer with an interesting flavor profile. This ale is fermented at slightly higher temperature than normal with Blueberries and local Honey added at conditioning along with a cold side infusion of a “mint tea.” This gives the beer a slightly tart and fruity quality with a subtle hint of mint freshness.

Burnside Blueberry Mint Saison will be available in 22oz bottles and draft, starting May 7th.

Style: Saison (w/ Blueberries, Mint, Tea.)
Hops: EKG
Malts: Pilsner, Vienna, and CaraPils

Availability: 22oz Bottles, Draft.
