EDMONTON, AB – Three years after the launch of the Alley Kat Brewing Big Bottle Series of limited edition and one-off beers, a beefed up version of the original installment in the series has been released as its latest offering.
6 1/2 Bears Oatmeal Export Stout is a 6.5% abv strong stout that is based on Three Bears Oatmeal Stout, but kicked up a notch – or rather “three and a half notches to be exact.”
It’s further described as follows:
Black in colour with a full bodied roasted malt taste and an increase in alcohol 6 1⁄2 Bears Oatmeal Export Stout is the perfect beer to keep you warm for the last days of winter. With a nice cream coloured head and a silky smooth finish, everyone will be asking for more… again.
6 1/2 Bears is available now in a limited run of 650 ml bottles at the Alley Kat retail store and select liquor stores in Alberta. A launch event will be held at the brewery today (Tuesday March 4th), with a special cask of 6 1/2 Bears with espresso added bring tapped at 6:00 PM.
