This Saturday, November 4th, Reuben’s Brews is releasing two variants of its popular BBIS (Bourbon Barrel Imperial Stout). One of those variants involves maple syrup, so the brewery decided to host a pancake breakfast to accompany the release.
It all gets started at 10:30 Saturday morning at the brewery’s taproom in Ballard. The beers are available on a while-supplies-last basis, so you’ve been warned. All the details were announced on social media. I share that announcement below.
BBIS VARIANT RELEASE AND PANCAKE BREAKFAST
This Saturday, November 5th, we’re celebrating the return of Stout season with two very special beer releases at the Taproom.
In addition to BBIS DOUBLE BARREL, a returning favorite for many dark beer devotees, we’re also releasing a fun new variant of our bourbon barrel imperial stout: BBIS DROWNING IN SYRUP. And to make the event all the more memorable, we’re pairing these beer releases with a pancake breakfast!
Stop by on Saturday between 10:30am and 1pm to get your stack, featuring BBIS maple syrup for the grown-ups, and the zero proof version for the kids. Both beers will be available for in-person sales at our Taproom while supplies last. We will also be offering a limited number of 3-bottle vertical packs containing 2022 BBIS, 2022 BBIS Double Barrel, and 2022 BBIS Drowning in Syrup (limit 1 per customer). Plus, anybody who purchases 3 or more bottles will receive a free stack of pancakes.
But there’s more! We’ll also have a special lineup of past and present BBIS variants on tap and in our to-go fridges, so don’t miss the chance to taste some of these limited releases side by side.
2022 BBIS DOUBLE BARREL – BBIS Double Barrel is an imperial stout aged twice in a blend of bourbon barrels. Starting with 1- and 2-year-old BBIS, we then re-barrel the blend in freshly emptied Heaven hill bourbon barrels. The second barrel treatment enhances the notes of vanilla and oak contributed by the wood, and raises the final ABV to 16 percent.
2022 BBIS DROWNING IN SYRUP – BBIS Drowning In Syrup Is an imperial stout featuring oats and British specialty grains aged In a blend of maple barrels with maple syrup added. These barrels, which previously held bourbon, bring additional nuance to an already complex beer.
