Avery Brewing Uncle Jacob’s Stout makes a return this weekend. The release is Batch 4.
It took just a few few short weeks for Uncle Jacob’s Stout to be found among the Top 25 most highly rated beers in the United States, prompting the brewery to make this an annual release. Jacob is an imperial stout, aged for six months in bourbon barrels.
Jacob Spears, our 6th Great Grand Uncle, is credited as the first distiller to label his whiskey ‘Bourbon.” He built his distillery in Bourbon County Kentucky in 1798– 203 years before we began brewing. While obviously a bit too late to produce Uncle Jacob’s wash, we’ve instead created something for more complex. In his honor, we present this robust, silky smooth, full-bodied and altogether extremely American rendition of an Imperial Stout aged for 6 months in the very finest bourbon barrels. This explains a lot about our penchant for big brews! It in our blood. (Brewed with Rocky Mountain Water, Malted Barley, Flaked Oats, Hops and Yeast.)
Avery Uncle Jacob’s Stout is available in 12oz bottles at Avery, starting February 22nd. Limited distribution to follow (see states below.)
