Bridgetown Beerhouse Growlers

The Beers that will be rotating in as the previously mentioned beers run out will include the follow:

CRUX FERMENTATION PROJECT – TOUGH LOVE (Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout) – $5/8oz
Tough Love is bold but nuanced, an homage of sorts to the traditional Russian Imperial Stouts and the ruling style of Catherine the Great. We Construct it with dark, roasted malts, malted rye, and oak-smoked wheat, and then banished it for nine months in Kentucky Bourbon Barrels. The aging smoothes out the edges on an otherwise bold statement, and bitterness succumbs to tender strokes of vanilla beans, hints of dried cherries, and new layers revealing themselves with each sip. ABV: 11.5%
