Abita’s Strawberry Doppelbock To Be Bottled

Abita Brewing’s Strawberry Harvest Lager is a hit each spring when it is released. The ale is flavored with fresh Louisiana strawberries.

In addition to Strawberry Harvest, the brewery has released in small batches, a rendition of their Andygator Doppelbock infused with strawberries, dubbed Strawator. A sweet, boozy, dessert offering.

Abita is gearing up to bottle Strawator as Strawgator in 22oz bombers.

Abita Strawgator is the fusion of Strawberry Harvest Lager sweetness with the bite of Andygator. This golden lager is made with malted barley and wheat. It is hopped with German Perle hops for a delicate hop flavor. After filtration, generous amounts of fresh Louisiana strawberry juice are added, giving the beer a pleasant sweet taste and aroma, as well as a rich golden color and slight cloudiness. 

Style: Doppelbock (w/ Strawberries)
Availability: 22oz Bombers, Draft.
Arrival: TBA

Troegs Launches First Barrel Aged Scratch Beer [PICS]

Today, Troegs Brewing (Hershey, PA)  tapped their first ever bourbon barrel aged scratch beer. Scratch #87  is a bourbon barrel aged version of their Troegenator aged 5 months in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels. According to Troegs:

…was kind of an experiment. We hadn’t done a scratch with bourbon barrels before and wanted to see how it would turn out with an already big beer like our Troegenator. We wanted this to be part of our Splinter Series, but the yield was so small that it just wasn’t an option”

According to John Trogner, the beer tastes neither like a bourbon barrel aged beer nor Troegenator itself. “It’s taken on a taste all its own.” Scratch #87 is available right now on tap only with no bottles and no growler fills.

Style: Doppelbock (Barrel Aged)
Availability: on tap only
Arrival: on tap now while it lasts

11.5% ABV

Jailhouse Launches First Doppelbock Today

Jailhouse Brewing (Hampton, GA) is launching their first doppelbock this today. The brewery started the first batches of this brew late this summer. Brewmaster Glen Golden describes this big beer:

Dead Man Walking marks our third entry into our seasonal lineup of beers known as the Trustees. Inspired by the darker days and haunting nights of October, Dead Man Walking is our  interpretation of a German-Style Doppelbock. Munich and Pilsner malt provide a hint of malt sweetness layered with dark crystal and  caramel malts including caramunich and caraaroma. The specialty grains impart noticeable dark fruit accents such as cherries, raisins and cranberries while the background notes of caramel  and cocoa play a haunting tune. A surprisingly semi-dry finish makes for a very drinkable and  refreshing version of a doppelbock.

Look for in 22 oz bombers, and draft in starting this week. (For those in Atlanta, look for a launch party at Cypress Street on 10/2)

Style: Doppelbock

7% ABV, 25 IBUs
