Ballast Point Brewing Releases Cinnamon Raisin Commodore Stout

cinnraisincommodoreglassBallast Point Brewing (San Diego, California) recently informed their fans on social media that Cinnamon Raisin Commodore American Stout is now available as a new limited release offering.

We started the week with an introduction to an interesting new variant being released by Ballast Point Brewing, and it looks like we will be closing it out with news of another.  Commodore American Stout is the latest year-round beer to get the variant treatment with this version incorporating the additions of cinnamon and raisins to give the beer a kick of dessert-inspired spice.  Commodore Stout got its start in the brewery’s R&D program, and became a surprise, gold-medal winning hit.  In similar fashion, Cinnamon Raisin Commodore came to be as one-off kegs featured exclusively at the brewery’s tasting rooms.  Its dark, bittersweet and roasty malt character supported by “just the right amount of sweet and spice” proved to be another home run with fans, and that made it an easy decision to turn it into Ballast Point’s latest 6-pack.

Cinnamon Raisin Commodore American Stout is a limited release currently only available on draft and in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles at the Ballast Point tasting rooms in the San Diego area.  Although the brewery has not announced plans for wider distribution, it is always possible that a few kegs or cases of this brew could maybe turn up at special events held in the near future within Ballast Point’s distribution area.  Keep your eyes open, remain vigilant, and maybe . . . just maybe . . . we will luck out and get a taste on the East Coast.  Prost!
