Since it’s nearly February you would think this writer would be content to promote light and refreshing beers. But you’d be wrong. In fact I have a strong fondness for beers that get better with age or when warmed up.
Should you choose to show up you’ll be treated to bourbon barrel-aged 2010 & 2011 Fauntleroy Imperial Stout, aged in spent Heaven Hills bourbon barrels. Following that up you’ll sip on 2010 and 2011 vintages of ‘regular’ Fauntleroy Imperial Stout. And finally head brewer Dan Ashley will provide you with a sample of the 2012 edition of the Imperial Stout.
Top that off with a thoughtfully-prepared “appetizer”, and you have one heck of an excuse to go home relaxed.
