(Winston-Salem, NC) – First tapping, retail launch, and bottle price…see below.
Per this morning’s Foothills Brewing email newsletter:
Mark your calendars: Sexual Chocolate 2011 is nearly upon us. Try it on draft starting at 4 pm on Friday, January 28 and then (after a brief nap) get in line. Bottles go on sale at 11am on January 29.
For those of you new to our beer, the Sexual Chocolate is an award-winning Russian Imperial Stout infused with organic cocoa nibs. Deep opaque black in color, it offers notes of espresso, blackstrap molasses, toffee, and dark fruits that serve to mask an alcohol content approaching ten percent.
Some of the accolades for the Sexual Chocolate include a silver medal at the ultra-prestigious Brewer’s Association World Beer Cup earlier this year, a bronze medal at the Great American Beer Festival in 2009, and a gold medal from the same festival in 2010 for Sexy C’s bourbon barrel-aged cousin.
As in years past, the Sexual Chocolate is $15 per 22-ounce bottle, with a limit of four bottles per customer. Lines can start forming at 4 am, and bottles will go on sale at 11 am. Please keep in mind that we cannot hold bottles for anyone, and that cutting places in line or holding places for other people is strictly prohibited. With that said, we can’t wait to see you here!
Can’t make it to Winston-Salem for the release? All is not lost. Look for on-premise Sexual Chocolate draft releases all over North Carolina from February 1-4 and a Virginia debut on February 7 at Jack Brown’s Joint in Harrisonburg, VA. We’ll keep you posted on all the Sexual Chocolate releases as more information becomes available.
