(Bloomington, IN) – One of the more creepy beer labels you’ll find.
Beginning in October, Upland Brewing will introduce Teddy Bear Kisses Imperial Stout in 22 oz. bottles (it will also be available in half-barrels). Fans of the Godfather movies might recognize the font on the bottle. The picture depicting a cute teddy bear (is that an eye hanging out of its socket?) being held captive in a large dark room can only come from a sinister mind.
Description courtesy of the brewery website: “A dark and robust beer brewed in the traditional stout method. Teddy Bear Kisses features an abundance of dark malts and high alpha hops for a powerful impact of roast, chocolate, and sweet bitterness. The lucky few who cuddle up to a warming session with Teddy Bear Kisses sense the velvety malt character, balanced bitter intensity, and soothing chocolate notes created by long aging on fair trade cocoa nibs. Teddy Bear Kisses will make you feel warm and happy inside, but it’s definitely not your childhood cuddle toy.”
