Black is Beautiful – Imperial Stout

View this post on Instagram

Our entry in the Black is Beautiful collaborative initiative spearheaded by @weatheredsoulsbrewing (San Antonio, TX). We will donate $7 from each CROWLER, $4 from each tulip sold to @appetiteforchange , to support their crucial work, using “food as a tool to build health, wealth, and social change” in North Minneapolis. The beer itself is a blended Imperial Stout (10.5% ABV) – we brewed a small batch closely hewing to the Black is Beautiful recipe template, and then blended in approximately 20% of a rye whiskey barrel-aged stout. Thick, imposing, layers of black malt flavor, with hints of vanilla and spirit barrel. Now available! Link in bio! #newbeerthursday

🤦‍♂️Well… We made an oops!

We apologize for any confusion this may have caused! Allow us to re-introduce…. Thank You For Being A Friend! The same light, crisp golden ale with the right touch of orange zest, now without infringement! Available in the taproom and in crowlers and growlers to go! Cheers all!
