Black Forest Cake inspired: The Bruery Geburtstagskranz

The Bruery Geburtstagskranz

German chocolate cake in a can? This is it. The Bruery Geburtstagskranz 2019 is now available.

It’s no secret that The Bruery loves big flavorful beers, and this oddly named release is no different. If our German is even close to correct, Geburtstagskranz means “birthday wreath”. The wreath is typically a decorated wooden circle where candles are lit instead of putting them on the birthday cake.

While that tradition is typically for kids, this beer is definitely for adults. The base beer is an imperial stout, aged in bourbon barrels with vanilla, cacao nibs, and tart cherries. The Bruery describes this release as “rich, with notes of sweet vanilla, chocolate, and tart juicy cherries”.

The Bruery Geburtstagskranz 2019 is available in 16oz cans ($12) and 4-packs ($42) each. Limited release.

Style: Imperial Stout (w/ Vanilla Beans. Cacao Nibs. Tart Cherries. Barrel Aged. Bourbon.)
Availability: 16oz Cans. Limited Release.
Debut: Early May 2019

Coffee double barrel-aged Oskar Blues JAHVanilla Ten Fidy debuts in April

Oskar Blues JAHVanilla Ten-Fidy

Ten-Fidy has a pretty epic reputation in craft beer. This April, you are going to see it a whole new way, in the form of Oskar Blues JAHVanilla.

This edition of Ten-Fidy is a blend of bourbon barrel-aged stout and double bourbon barrel-aged imperial stout, with HotBox Roasters cold brew coffee and Madagascar vanilla beans. The brewery aged it slightly until the flavors blended well. Last year’s release was not blended with the double-barrel.

“The blending of double-barrel aged FIDY and barrel-aged FIDY this year is pretty special. It adds to the complexity and depth of JAHvanilla. Then we hit it with premium vanilla and cold brew and the beer hulks out with flavor.” Tim Matthews, Head of Brewing Operations

Oskar Blues JAHvanilla Barrel-Aged Ten Fidy Imperial Stout will only available in the brewery’s Longmont, Colorado and Brevard, North Carolina taprooms on April 20th.

Style: Imperial Stout (Barrel Aged. Vanilla Beans. Coffee.)
Availability: 19.2 Cans
Debut: 4/20/19

14.3% ABV

Imperial stout fans, look to Asheville, North Carolina. Hi-Wire Salted Maple 10W-40 Imperial Stout debuts Friday
