Nantahala Brewing Judaculla, a barrel-aged Russian imperial stout, is available once again.
This once a year beer got its start in 2011. Nantahala Brewing Head Brewer Greg Geiger and Owner Joe Rowland created that combined the boldness of a big imperial stout, the vanilla notes of whiskey, and a local flavor that set it apart. The duo identified sorghum, which is produced in the Western North Carolina mountains, to add to the beer. Sorghum (used in root beer) adds molasses notes to Judaculla.
The imperial stout is brewed with sorghum, and then transferred to Jack Daniels barrels for four months. Finally, Judaculla is blend again with fresh, hoppy roasty stout.
“Judaculla took on a life of its own. It’s a complex beer that represents a style we love and offers a blend of flavors that are unique to the culture and history of our area.” – Co-owner Joe Rowland
Nantahala Brewing Judaculla is available in 22 ounce bottles in the taproom and limited distribution.
