GRAVENHURST, ON – Sawdust City Brewing has announced the release of a new limited edition beer to mark the 1st anniversary of the opening of its bricks-and-mortar brewery and taproom in downtown Gravenhurst.
1606 is a 5.7% abv barrel-aged stout with the following notes:
Our very own Skinny Dippin’ Stout aged for 12 months in Ontario red wine barrels, “1606” has all the roasted, chocolate notes you’ve come to love in our stout. We’ve just made it betterer! There’s now a big oak character on the nose, along with a slight funk and a lovely vinous character as well. Oh yeah, we dosed the barrels with raspberries throughout the year too, so there’s a slight cheek puckering tartness in there… just to round everything out!
1606 is the second in the brewery’s Winewood Series – originally known as the Big Bottle Series, but renamed with this release to be more descriptive and unique.
Approximately 400 bottles (750 ml) of 1606 will be going on sale today (September 4th) at the Sawdust City retail store, with a small number of kegs also produced for distribution to select bars in Ontario.
