Wellington Brewery Announces 2019 Edition of UVB-76 Imperial Stout Series

GUELPH, ON – Wellington Brewery has announced details its 3rd annual annual set of seasonal barrel-aged imperial stouts.

UVB-76 (11.9% abv) takes its name from a mysterious shortwave radio station that broadcasts a repeating buzz tone that is occasionally interrupted by a voice in Russian that includes many names in its messages.

The series debuted in 2017 with four beers released as part of Wellington’s DecemBEER promotion. In 2018, two of the original versions returned, and were joined by two new variants.

For 2019, Roman (bourbon barrel-aged) is back for a third year, and is joined by Elena (bourbon barrel-aged with chocolate and mint), Dasha (cognac barrel-aged), and Maksim (cognac barrel-aged with coconut, bitter orange, and dried cherries).

The beers can be pre-ordered now via Wellington’s online store, and will be released at the brewery on Saturday November 9th with a launch event that will feature food pairings and 12 further versions available exclusively on draught.
