Foothills Dead and Berried (blackberry bourbon stout) coming late summer

Foothills Dead and Berried

Foothills Dead and Berried, an all new imperial stout aged in bourbon barrels with raspberries, is slated for August.

This year, the Foothills Barrel Aged Sexual Chocolate release was pushed up to spring. You have the barrels to thank for that. Because of this move, the brewery had a slot in the release schedule (August-September) that needed to be filled. 300 freshly emptied Buffalo Trace barrels recently came to the Foothill’s Winston-Salem, North Carolina home, for BA Sexual Chocolate and Barrel Aged People’s Porter. However, some barrels were left over.

That’s where Foothills Dead and Berried got started. The brewery created an all new imperial stout (different from the Sex chocolate base) last fall. That beer aged for a while on 420 pounds Oregonian blackberries. Then – bourbon barrels for over 5 months.

Up side? Another potentially fantastic barrel-aged beer from Foothills.

Downside? Foothills Dead and Berried will be draft only this time around. On draft at the brewery and brewpub, and the Denver Rare Beer Tasting this fall.
