January Preorder

We’re kicking off the new year with our first preorder of 2021! Be the first to get your hands on our latest releases, including:

Dragon’s Milk Reserve: Bourbon Barrel-Aged Stout with Peanut Butter & Cocoa Nibs

Dragon’s Milk Reserve: Bourbon Barrel-Aged Stout with Peanut Butter & Cocoa Nibs

The first Dragon’s Milk Reserve release of 2021 is a rich and nutty take on our legendary bourbon barrel-aged stout. Waves of smooth, velvety flavors wash over your taste buds to conjure the familiar taste of peanut butter cups. Aged in select bourbon barrels for three months and finished with massive amounts of real peanut butter and cocoa nibs, our latest Reserve is an indulgent experience that is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth. — $17.99/4pk (Limit 12 4-packs)

Peanut Butter Poet

Peanut Butter Poet

Combining two classics for one delectable treat, we took our classic oatmeal stout, The Poet, and upped the ABV while loading it with real Reese’s™ peanut butter. The result is a rich, velvety, full-bodied brew with a nutty sweetness to amplify the stout you know and love. Quoth the Raven, “More peanut butter please!” — $15.99/4pk (No limit)

Dragon’s Milk Reserve: Bourbon Barrel-Aged Stout with Peanut Butter & Cocoa Nibs

Blue Sunday (2021)

Released annually to celebrate progress and challenges overcome, Blue Sunday is foeder-aged for a full year with cultures dating back to its original release more than a decade ago. Part tart-past, part sweeter-present, Blue Sunday is a toast to our continuous pursuit of a future bettered by history. — $13.99/500mL (No limit)
