Friends with beer benefits may be the greatest kind of friends there are. If that’s the case, Angry Chair Brewing (Tampa, Florida) is way ahead of the curve.
The Florida brewers have two collaboration stouts releasing this weekend: Turtle Sundae and Barrel-Aged Cookies and Cream. The beers are brewed in collaboration with American Solera (Tulsa, Oklahoma) and Untitled Art (Waunakee, Wisconsin), respectively.
Turtle Sundae is packed with flavor just like its namesake. Big notes of chocolate and caramel coupled with toasted pecans and vanilla beans make for a truly decadent 11% ABV stout. *Maraschino cherry not include.
Barrel-Aged Cookies and Cream, while equally decadent, goes through a different process than Turtle Sundae. This beer first goes through 15 months in bourbon barrels before marrying with a ridiculous amount of cacao nibs. Clocking in at 12.4% ABV, it’s got big flavor to match.
