VICTORIA, BC – Phillips Brewing has brought back winter seasonal Hammer Imperial Stout, and as in the last several years, two different versions are available:
Crafted in the tradition of the Russian Czarist courts, these twin soldiers were born with the same recipe, but raised very differently. The classic is aged in stainless tanks and full of rich roasted flavours, while the barrel-aged version matures in freshly emptied bourbon barrels which impart rich vanilla oak flavours. Enjoyed side-by-side, they are a great opportunity to taste first-hand the impact that barrel-aging can have on a beer.
650 ml bottles of both editions of Phillips Hammer are available now in select private liquor stores in BC, as well as at the Phillips brewery store. A release party will take place on Thursday January 8th from 4:00 to 6:00 PM at the Phillips brewery tasting room.
