Halloween Beer

BridgePort has another of its Big Brews out, this time a bourbon-barrel-aged imperial porter. For years and years and years, the only Halloween beer has been Dead Guy--a beer that really isn't even a Halloween beer. BridgePort is finally seizing advantage of the category. The new beer is called "Raven Mad." The label is 3-D, and if you show up at the brewery on Thursday (10/23) from 5-8, they'll give you glasses to behold the label in its full glory. They are asking folks to dress up like their favorite Hitchcock character, but you're on your own there.

Do you know the actual date this is supposed to hit shelves?

No, though the release on Thursday signals that it will be bottled and ready for distribution. I would expect to see bottles by the end of the week or early next week.

Up until this beer, the only stout that I know of that was aged in pinot noir barrels was Pavlov's Dog which Lucky Lab released last winter. Do you think more places are going to start experimenting with wine barrel aging as opposed to bourbon/whiskey barrel aging?

I'd like to see some Scotch and Congac barrels used... ;-}
