New Realm Brewing Kicks Off 2020-21 Wooded Reserve Series with Rum Barrel-Aged Oaxaca Choca

New Realm Brewing Company (Atlanta, Georgia) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of Barbados Rum Barrel-Aged Oaxaca Choca Imperial Mexican Chocolate Stout on November 10, 2020.

The first of five releases in the brewery’s 2020-21 Wooded Reserve Series that “represents the true spirit of brewing exploration and harkens back to the original renaissance of beer spurred by the hardworking barrel makers,” Barbados Rum Barrel-Aged Oaxaca Choca takes the fan-favorite base beer – Oaxaca Choca, “an Imperial Stout reminiscent of Mexican-style hot chocolate, is loaded with cinnamon, vanilla, chili peppers and locally roasted cacao nibs” – and carefully ages it for six months in Barbados Rum barrels. Coming in at 10.8% ABV, Barbados Rum Barrel-Aged Oaxaca Choca “is creamy, full-bodied, with notes of cocoa, cinnamon, and raisin . . . [alongside] light burnt sugar notes provided by the rum barrels, while the oak is enhanced by the subtle vanilla in the beer.”

“Oaxaca Choca was developed by Mitch’s team in our inaugural year, a beautiful Imperial Mexican Chocolate Stout that is always one of our most sought-after annual releases,” said Bob Powers, Co-Founder and Chief Sales Marketing Officer for New Realm Brewing. “We decided to age it in rum barrels to up the ante even further – now the oak, coconut, vanilla, and molasses rum flavors from aging in the wood, complement the chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon, and chili pepper notes of the original beer.”

A very limited amount of Barbados Rum Barrel-Aged Oaxaca Choca will release on November 10 and will be available only as long as supplies last. You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 500ml bottles and on draft at select independent package retailers located within New Realm’s distribution footprint in Georgia and Virginia. Prost!
