Oskar Blues Ten Fidy imperial stout in a can will be making an early appearance this year – as early as the first week in October.
According to a recent press release:
“Ten FIDY is no walk in the park to create; it’s a labor intensive beer.” Ten FIDY’s gargantuan grain bill is just short of 50 percent specialty malts that are packaged in 55 pound bags and loaded into the mill by hand. The many bags of oats are poured directly into the mash tun. Oats and rice hulls are lugged up the 20-odd stairs to the top of the brew-deck to be placed near the mash tun. “We aren’t mashing it with a computer from a comfy control room. It takes hands-on craft brewing to make a big ‘ole can of eat-it-with-a-fork stout.”
If you are a stout lover, and haven’t had Ten Fidy you are really missing out. This imp stout in a can has an impressive rating report card, and has been recognized in too numerous to count food columns and magazines as one of the best beers in America.
