Cascade Brewing (Portland Oregon) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of Mayan Bourbonic 2017 on April 16, 2020.
A variant of Cascade Brewing’s Bourbonic Plague that has been “inspired by the traditional drink of the ancient Mayan civilization,” Mayan Bourbonic is a “sour imperial porter aged in Bourbon and wine barrels with dates for up to two years, then infused with Peruvian cocoa powder, Ceylon cinnamon and cayenne pepper.” Weighing in at 11.7% ABV, Mayan Bourbonic “delivers notes of bitter chocolate, Bourbon and cinnamon with a mild cayenne spice and delicate carbonation level.”
Mayan Bourbonic 2017 will debut at Cascade’s two Portland pubs – Cascade Brewing Barrel House (click here to pre-order for local delivery or pickup at the Barrel House) and Lodge at Cascade Brewing – on April 16 and will enter limited distribution shortly after that date. You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 500ml bottles and on draft at select craft beer-focused establishments located within Cascade Brewing’s distribution network. Prost!
