HALIFAX, NS – Garrison Brewing has announced details for the 2nd special beer being released in honour of the company’s 15th anniversary.
Following on the 15th Anniversary Hops, Mango & Ginger released back in June, 15th Anniversary Malt, Vanilla & Cocoa is an Imperial Stout that is described as “intensely rich, complex, dark, roasty, bittersweet.”
Similar to how the previous beer was made with 15 distinct hop varieties, the recipe for the new brew included 15 different malts along with two unmalted grains, vanilla beans, and cocoa husks.
The resulting 9% strong ale will be released tomorrow (Friday December 7th) in a limited run of 500 ml bottles that will be available at the Garrison retail store and all private liquor stores in Nova Scotia while supplies last. Garrison will be celebrating the release with an open house at the brewery from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM with samples and nibbles.
