Oakshire To Release Hellshire II

Oakshire Brewing (Eugene, OR) is adding on to the Hellshire lineup with Hellshire II.   Hellshire I was released in May, 2011 and was a barleywine aged in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels.  First run was limited to 120 cases.  [PR on Hell I] Hellshire II will be an imperial stout, aged in bourbon barrels.

Deep within the recesses of the alcoves & antechambers of Oakshire Brewing lies another realm.  It’s a place where carefully fermented beers are laid to rest in oaken sarcophagi.  They slumber for aeons & emerge as wholly new & unique entities, fueling the malformed creatures that populate those blasted and eldritch wastes.  That place is HELLSHIRE.

Hellshire II is an Imperial Stout aged for 6  months in freshly emptied bourbon barrels.  Notes of vanilla, coconut, chocolate, roasted coffee, oak & bourbon intertwine with the beer’s complex malt flavors. It’s ready to enjoy now or can be cellared cool and dry for several years.  Cheers! Mat Van Wyk, Brewmaster.
