Weyerbacher Brewing Set to Release Finally Legal Bourbon Barrel-Aged Stout

finally-legal-4packwithbottle-282x300Weyerbacher Brewing Company (Easton, Pennsylvania) has announced plans to release Finally Legal Bourbon Barrel-aged Stout as a new Special Release offering on Friday, April 7.

Inspired by the fan-favorite 21st Anniversary beer released in June 2016, Weyerbacher Brewing has created Finally Legal to be a bourbon barrel-aged Stout with cocoa and vanilla.  This offering begins with a base recipe consisting of Munich malts, smoked malts, cocoa nibs, cocoa powder and vanilla.  This base Stout is then “blended . . . with its bourbon barrel aged counterpart” to result in a 13.5% ABV offering that “has rich chocolate flavor with hints of vanilla and a touch of smoky bacon.”

Finally Legal will officially debut at a Release Event at The Tap Room at Weyerbacher Brewing on Friday, April 7.  This limited release will then enter distribution shortly thereafter.  You can expect to find Finally Legal in 4-packs of 12 oz. bottles at select craft beer establishments in Florida, Pennsylvania and throughout the rest of Weyerbacher’s distribution area.  Prost!
