SAVOR presents us with a chance to taste some oddities, two to three ounces at a time. Here are some beers we’d like at least a sip of at the upcoming 2022 event.
The Bruery, Portified Black Tuesday, Imperial Stout, 17.9% alcohol by volume
“We started this project over three years ago with our standard Black Tuesday base and laid it to rest in port pipes [the casks used for maturing this wine], says Barry Holmes, CEO of The Bruery. “We blended in fresh Syrah grapes to sweeten the base beer through the years. We let it age until it finally felt ready to unleash upon the world. Portified Black Tuesday is an immensely complex, concentrated, and decadent beer. This ‘beer’ is best enjoyed like a digestif as it’s packaged still,” with no carbonation.
We’ll add that in order to buy a 500mL bottle of this beer, for, uh, $55, you have to be a member of The Bruery’s Hoarder-level membership. Get your money’s worth at SAVOR.
Dogfish Head, Fermentation Engastration, ???, 10% abv
