“Kidnap the Sandy Claws
Lock him up real tight
Throw away the key and then
Turn off all the lights”
– “Kidnap the Sandy Claws”, The Nightmare Before Christmas
Avery Brewing Co. (Boulder, Colorado) has officially announced that an incredibly limited supply of Sandy Claws, a holiday-themed Bourbon Barrel-aged Imperial Stout, will be available nationwide this holiday season.
Arriving as No. 51 in Avery Brewing Co.’s Barrel-Aged Series, Sandy Claws is a festive Imperial Stout brewed with peppermint and chocolate that the brewery’s elves later kidnapped and locked away “in a Bourbon barrel for months.” Weighing in at a monstrous 14.5% ABV, Sandy Claws has emerged from captivity to bring “you holiday cheer and a bit of fear.”
With only 500 cases available nationwide, Sandy Claws started rolling out this week and will be available as long as supplies last. You can expect to find this incredibly limited release offering available in 12 oz. bottles at select craft beer establishments located in Florida, Colorado and throughout the rest of Avery Brewing Co.’s distribution area. Prost!
