TORONTO, ON – Bellwoods Brewery has announced that a brand name from several years ago has been revived for a new beer that is different in style, but similar in spirit.
Blitzen Imperial Stout (10% abv):
Some of you may recall that Blitzen started back in the very early days of Bellwoods (2013ish by our digging) as an Imperial Saison w/ Plum and Lemon, and was released this time of year to embody holiday flavours. Our inspiration was based loosely on sugar plums (like the visions that dance in one’s head on Christmas eve) and the prep was memorable because our small team of 3 sat and pitted fruit for what felt like an eternity. There was a lot of mumbling about never wanting to see plums again.
The hiatus for this brand has been long, so we’re especially happy to bring it back this year, re-envisioned to embody different but still holiday-esque flavours (this batch is a nod to After 8 chocolates). It’s rich and smooth like an Imperial Stout should be, and the elements of mint, chocolate, and vanilla work in perfect harmony.
Blitzen is available now at both Bellwoods retail stores and the brewery’s online shop.
