(Fort Bragg, CA) – North Coast Brewing Company’s anticipated annual release of Barrel-Aged Old Rasputin is here again, just in time for the holiday season. And given its gravity – 11.9% ABV – it’s sure to be a merry addition to any festive gathering.
Every year we age a special batch of our infamous Russian Imperial Stout in whiskey barrels – this year we used bourbon – adding an extra kick and flavor profile to an already impressively well-balanced and potent brew. This 2017 release – the XX – is every bit as deep, intense, and complex as both its barrel-aged predecessors and its namesake, the Russian mystic Grigori Rasputin.
North Coast Brewing Company’s Barrel-Aged Old Rasputin is available at better beer stores nationwide. Use our Beer Locator to find it near you.
Originally destined for limited release out of the brewery’s retail shop and Taproom in Fort Bragg, CA, this barrel-aged brew quickly grew in notoriety and beginning in 2010 North Coast put it into broader distribution. It’s still a limited – and coveted – release but can now be found in specialty stores around the country.
