Oskar Blues & Cigar City debut ‘Bamburana’, a double barrel-aged imperial stout

Oskar Blues Cigar City Bamburana

Oskar Blues and Cigar City, both part of the CANarchy collective, are debuting a barrel-aged imperial stout nationally this month.

This collaboration is a big one, perfect for a winter release. The two breweries created an imperial stout, aged in both whiskey barrels and brandy barrels, with figs and dates. After blending into the finishing tanks, Bamburana was then aged again on Amburana wood spirals. Amburna is a tropical tree native to Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Paraguay, and Peru.

“We were pleasantly surprised with the vanilla and gingerbread spice nuances this South American wood contributed into the finished beer and look forward to putting this delicious beer in front of folks,” said Wayne Wambles of Cigar City Brewing

Oskar Blues Cigar City Bamburana is a national release in 12-ounce cans and draft starting in mid-January, 2019.

Style: Imperial Stout (w/ Figs. Dates. Barrel Aged. Whiskey. Brandy.)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Limited Release.

Debut: Mid-January 2019

12.2% ABV

Green Flash Ochre Frumento, the brewery’s booziest ever

Green Flash Ochre Frumento

Green Flash Ochre Frumento will join the brewery’s Barrelmaster Reserve Series on September 17th. Incidentally, the strongest beer the brewery’s has ever released.

The base of Green Flash Ochre Frumento is a barleywine, that has aged a total of 6 years in both bourbon and brandy barrels. The final alcohol by volume is a whopping 17.5%, which is officially the strongest beer the San Diego based brewery has ever released.

 It pours a deep brown and presents an aroma that is sharp and spirit-barrel forward. Prominent flavors of toffee and caramel envelop the palate, and supporting notes of ripened stone fruits with nutty complexity unfold through the finish.

The first release in the series sold out in hours – Lustrous Frumento with Coffee.

There are only 600 bottles of Green Flash Ochre Frumento available. Find it at the brewery’s Cellar 3 Facility on Saturday, September 17th.

Style: American Strong Ales (Barrel Aged. Bourbon. Brandy.)
Availability: 750m Bottles. Limited

Debut: 9/14/16

17.5% ABV

Jester King Buford’s Roadside Wares, a new collab

Jester King Buford's Roadside Wares

Jester King Buford’s Roadside Wares, a new collaboration with Arizona Wilderness Brewing Co. debuts this month.

The creation of Jester King Buford’s Roadside Wares started back in January of 2015 when Jonathan Buford and Patrick Ware of Arizona Wilderness traveled to Jester King on a cold Texas day. In hand, the duo had Arizona pecans and Sonora white wheat. Jester King’s additions included Texas pecans and local white wheat.

The result is a new American wild ale inoculated with Jester King’s coolship’s mixed culture, aged in brandy barrels that once contained Jester King Repose.

Jester King Buford’s Roadside Wares was  “momentum batch” for the brewery – a batch of beer designed to wake up airborne yeast and bacteria in the air for more spontaneously fermented beers to come that season.

Available at Jester King starting March 18th, at 4 pm.

Style: American Wild/Sour Ale (w/ Pecans. Barrel Aged. Brandy.)
Hops: Fuggle

Availability: 750ml Bottles, Draft
Debut: 3/18/16

6.4% ABV
