Has a year passed by already? Apparently so because Phillips has released their yearly anniversary beer. Bourbon barrel aged for a year before dry hopping; sounds like a plan to me. Sadly no brewing mention of the number 14. Not 14 malts, 14%ABV, 14 hops, maybe they blended 14 different barrels? Regardless, it will be available very soon at better CBAW stores. Press release and pretty picture to follow. See you all there from 4-6 pm today for samples and real life social time.
August 17th, 2015: It’s our birthday, and we’re celebrating with a very special gorilla-sized barrel aged brew! Super Cooper was aged in freshly emptied bourbon barrels for a full year before dry-hopping. Soft malt sweetness and warm oak character from the barrel is paired with the bright kick of American hops. It’s our first Anniversary Ale with an anniversary of its own!
Bottles are limited and available at private craft-focused liquor stores for a short time only.
We would also like to invite you to celebrate with us at a couple of Super Cooper tasting events:
IN VICTORIA: Enjoy a taster and say cheers to another year of beer along with us at the brewery on Wednesday August 19th from 4-6. Our friends at Meat and Bread will be on-hand serving up Porchetta sandwiches with a citra hop verde sauce!
