A Note on This Beer
I’ll cut to the chase.
Hardywood Park’s OG Gingerbread Stout is easily one of the most sought-after holiday beers in the country. Food & Wine even says “the first taste of this unique beer was a revelatory experience!”
And today, you get to taste the whiskey-dunked version of that very cookie brew — Bourbon Barrel-Aged GBS! It sits among the Top 20 Milk Stouts in the WORLD on BeerAdvocate!
To craft this legendary treat, the 4x GABF medal-winning brewers took their ginger, wildflower honey, cinnamon, vanilla bean, and lactose-laced Gingerbread Imperial Stout, and aged it in locally-sourced bourbon barrels.
The result is beyond delicious. With each decadently thick taste, you’ll experience how the barrel-aging masters delicately conjure flavors of woody molasses, dark chocolate, and fresh-baked gingerbread. Breathe in aromas of oaky vanilla, sweet honey, and creamy coconut as you indulge in another silky-smooth sip.
It's entirely up to you to bring this delicacy home — or to blow away your most high-brow craft buddy at the annual bottle share! Only question is: will you call dibs on your bottles before your fellow Stout sippers do?
