Perrin Brewing Set to Release Black Goat Bourbon Barrel-aged Black Lager

blackgoatPerrinbottle_editedPerrin Brewing Company (Comstock Park, Michigan) recently announced that they will let loose the Black Goat Double Black Lager Aged in Bourbon Barrels on Friday, May 12.

Arriving as Perrin Brewing’s third specialty bottle release of 2017, Black Goat is a “high gravity double black lager [that] was laid down and aged for several months before coming to life.”  This amped up Schwarzbier sports aromatics of vanilla, stone fruit and chocolate while featuring “a unique charred oak character and a smooth, warm caramel bourbon flavor that will exceed all taste bud expectations.” At 8.5% ABV, Black Goat is a complex lager that demands your respect and is meant for sipping.

Black Goat officially launches in the Perrin Brewing Company pub on May 12 on draft and on May 15 in 22 oz. bottles.  Shortly after the pub release, Black Goat will be available at select craft beer establishments located in Perrin Brewing’s distribution area of Florida, Michigan, Colorado, Indiana, Ohio and New York City.   If you happen to reside in these areas, be sure to check this one out later this month.  Prost!
