Why is head brewer Ryan Morrill smiling? Because you will be too: in one hand, only the biggest beer we've ever brewed, a Russian Imperial Stout, weighing in at 11%. Oh...that will all be going into Bourbon Barrels, ready sometime around Thanksgiving.
And in the other: a Black Session IPA; roast meets hops, all in a 4.1% abv. Release 2-3 weeks! #andnowyouknow
