VICTORIA, BC – Phillips Brewing has brought back winter seasonal The Hammer Imperial Stout, and as in the last several years, two different versions are available:
The Hammer Imperial Stout is once again smashing back to your local liquor store in 2 varieties. The classic is aged in stainless tanks and full of rich roasted flavours and a velvety smooth mouthfeel, while the barrel-aged version is aged in freshly emptied bourbon barrels which impart rich vanilla oak flavours. Both varieties pair beautifully with dark winter nights, or if you have the patience, are great candidates to make disappear for awhile in your beer cellar gulag.
650 ml bottles of The Hammer and The Hammer Barrel Aged are available now in select private liquor stores in BC, as well as at the Phillips brewery store. A tasting of both versions as well as the recently released Trainwreck Barley Wine will take place at the Phillips brewery on Thursday December 5th from 4:00 to 6:00 PM.
