Announced a couple of days ago in their Newsletter, North Coast Brewing has released their 2009 Bourbon Barrel-aged Old Stock Ale, to the public.
North Coast Brewing Announces Release of Barrel-Aged Old Stock Cellar Reserve
We have just released a special batch of our award-winning Old Stock Ale. The vintage 2009 brew has been aged for 18 months in oak Bourbon barrels and has been called by Brewmaster, Mark Ruedrich, "One of the most exciting beers we've produced since we began our barrel aging program back in 1998." Old Stock Cellar Reserve is bottled in a distinctively decorated 500 ml bottle with a cork and wire finish and has gone to a limited number of distributors in select markets.
With an extremely limited release outside of the brewery, you can be assured that there will be a bottle limit, if your favorite grocer or bottleshop receives a case.
A pioneer in the craft beer movement, opened in 1988 as a local brewpub in the historic town of Fort Bragg, located on California’s Mendocino Coast.
Under the leadership of brew master Mark Ruedrich, the brewery has developed a strong reputation for quality having won more than 70 awards in national and international competitions.
In addition to Red Seal Ale, Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout, Scrimshaw Pilsner, and other fine North Coast brands, the brewery has resurrected the old Acme label with a heritage dating back to the San Francisco of the 1860’s.
These exceptional beers are available in 47 states now and also are exported to Europe and the Pacific Rim.
