North Coast Brewing Co. has just released a special batch of its award-winning Old Stock Ale. The vintage 2009 brew has been aged for 18 months in oak Bourbon barrels and has been called by Brewmaster, Mark Ruedrich, “One of the most exciting beers we’ve produced since we began our barrel aging program back in 1998.” Old Stock Cellar Reserve is bottled in a distinctively decorated 500 ml bottle with a cork and wire finish and has gone to a limited number of distributors in select markets.
Anchorage Press Review: “I was totally unprepared for the onslaught of rich complexity, intense flavor and stellar balance coming out of my brandy snifter of this incredible stuff.”
BeerGeekNation Review (including video!): “The aging process gives this world-class beer an added layer of complexity.”
