Are you tired of every beer being a DDH IPA or a fruited sour? Maybe those seltzers are wearing you out, too. Well, you’re in luck because a few breweries in the Philadelphia area brought back Stout Season this week. Releases include dessert-inspired and barrel-aged stouts, so you have quite the variety to choose from.
Warwick Farm Brewing is releasing their Brewer’s Reserve Nightmare Series Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout. This beer appeared in bottles before, but this is the first time they’ve canned a Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout in their Nightmare Series. They aged this one in Dad’s Hat barrels for six months, and it’s available in their online store now.
Free Will Brewing is releasing Another Fine Day this Saturday, August 7th. It’s a Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout with Bananas, Cacao Nibs, Walnuts, Madagascar Vanilla, and Milk Sugar. This beer comes in 8.4-ounce cans and packs a huge punch at 12.1% ABV. They ship to PA, DC, and Virginia.
Levante Brewing just hosted a stout-themed event for Christmas In July, so they have a few Imperial Stouts available in their online store. These include two varieties of Coffee Shoppe Terminology, a Barrel-Aged Imperial Coffee Stout, and Bake Shoppe Terminology (Strawberry). Purchase beer for shipping or pickup at their locations here.
