A Note on This Beer
After the holiday chaos has passed, it’s time to relax and treat yourself to some “me time” with Silver City’s Bourbon Barrel Aged Old Scrooge.
Why BBA Old Scrooge, you ask? Well, let’s put it this way... in a recent competition by Paste Magazine, this 9.6% ABV boozebomb scored #3 Best Winter Beer Ever Made! Placing one spot higher than even the coveted Fremont B-Bomb (you know, that gift you probably gave to your ultra picky beer friend to show off your awesome Tavour member benefits.)
Don’t feel bad about saving today’s beer for yourself. Your beer friend doesn’t have to know. Consider it a gift to yourself, from yourself. Self love is important, and BBA Old Scrooge is the perfect way to say “I Love Me.” Your palate will thank you.
The original Old Scrooge is a 5-time GABF medal-winning Old Ale that sips like a rich, boozy Barleywine. In the spirit of the holidays, the brewery gifted their adoring fans by taking this beloved beer even deeper by aging it for a full year in Kentucky Bourbon Barrels.
The result drips with oaky, vanilla-caramel flavor. Floods of 100-proof honeyed dates, candied lemon peel, and Madagascar vanilla pour over your palate with every sip. Bourbon Barrel Aged Old Scrooge will make you bundle up in your secret getaway, savoring every sip for yourself.
As the season of sharing comes to an end, embrace your inner Scrooge and enjoy a beer meant just for you.
