A Note on This Beer
Whether you’re a serious rare beer collector, or a casual fan looking for a bottle to elevate an already special night, VIP access to Firestone Walker’s cellar is quite the perk!
For any beer lover who wants to add a special bottle to their own cellar, there’s Velvet Merkin Imperial Oatmeal Stout (2018). They haven’t released this brew in over two years, and the brewery says they won’t be making anymore!
This 100% Woodford Reserve Bourbon Barrel-aged Oatmeal Stout is replete with flavors of rich, dark chocolate, and hints of coffee. And, after two years in the brewery’s 40 degree Fahrenheit temperature-controlled cellar, it’s even smoother, richer, and fudgier than it was on release. You’ll discover new flavors of chocolate-covered cherry and creamy marshmallow.
What’s more, Firestone Walker carefully crafts their Barrel-Aged Stouts so they can age up to 10 years, becoming more complex with each passing day.
Open Velvet Merkin 2018 now to toast a milestone, or stash one away for a celebration down the line. Either way, it will make a memorable day that much more special.
*If you would like to cellar it for an additional period, the brewery recommends a MAXIMUM of 55 degrees for long-term storage.
Firestone Walker has been crafting Bourbon Barrel-Aged beers for over 14 years. Their barrel program alone has won more awards than most breweries have in total!
