VANCOUVER, BC – VanEast Beer Blog reports that Vancouver’s Storm Brewing is set to release what brewer James Walton describes as “the most interesting beer in the province” – and also the most expensive in the country.
Glacial Mammoth Extinction is a 25% abv beer created by freezing a batch of Storm’s Imperial Flanders Red Sour Ale in a two stage process, and then aging it in French oak barrels for two years. The final product is described as “a sweet, rich, viscous 100% malt beverage that resembles Port more than beer.”
400 litres of Glacial Mammoth Extinction have been produced, and 10 of those litres will be released on December 5th in an ultra-limited art edition of 10 bottles hand-blown by Terminal City Glass Co-Op‘s Brad Turner and decorated with a one-of-a-kind pendant made from 35,000-year-old mammoth ivory by artist Richard Marcus, with each bottle selling for $1000.
The remaining 390 litres will be sold via growler fills at the brewery for a “still-pricey-but-far-more-reasonable” price of $80 per litre.
