Today at 3 pm, Westbrook Brewing (Mt Pleasant, SC) released three different barrel aged editions of their Mexican Cake Imperial Stout. What started as their 1st anniversary beer, brewed with vanilla beans, cocoa nibs, cinnamon and habanero peppers, has become a bit of a sensation. Cake was recently brewed again and bottled. (Lasted seconds on shelves.) Morgan and Edward Westbrook knew the one thing they could do to make this hit even better? Barrel aging.
Three offerings launched today – Apple Brandy Barrel Aged, Jack Daniels Barrel Aged, and Cabernet Barrel Aged. Despite the rain, thirsty people lined up for the release. More pics to come. Thanks to Yelp Charleston Community Manager Scott Carpenter for the pics.
