BANGERZ ONLY

It’s a whale of an ale! Unicorns are real! On the first Tuesday of every month, we raid our cellar and tap one of the most rare, special, or just downright delicious beers we can find. We like to call them Bangerz! Every Banger will be tapped at open, but when it’s gone, it’s gone. We will have no regrets. Will you?

 

This month’s Banger is:

North Coast Brewing Co. {Fort Bragg, CA}

Barrel Aged Old Rasputin XX…$12

Bourbon BA Imperial Stout / 11.1% / Small Snifter

 

Every year, we age a special batch of our much-loved Russian Imperial Stout in Bourbon barrels. The depth, intensity, and complexity of the flavor profile of this special release, like its predecessors, make it a worthy tribute to Old Rasputin.
