If you’re a fan of barrel aged stouts and porters then you know that Fall can be a trying time for your wallet. Over the past couple of months, I’ve been to several different barrel aged beer releases and, by no means, was I alone at these releases. Most had a line stretching down the street and around the corner with many people in line buying up to their allowed limit.
Well, I hope you haven’t depleted your holiday season craft beer spending limit yet, because Two Beers Brewing Company (CBM Sponsor) is pleased to announce the return of Overhang Bourbon Imperial Porter this Friday, December 16th at The Woods taproom.
Here is the full press release from Two Beers Brewing Company:
SEATTLE (December 14, 2016) – The tree is trimmed and the stockings are hung, but the holidays wouldn’t be complete without a bottle of 2016 Overhang Bourbon Imperial Porter from Seattle’s Two Beers Brewing Company. Part of the brewery’s popular Alta Series, available in 22-ounce wax-dipped bottles, Overhang is a uniquely boozy beer perfect for the season, aged in bourbon barrels for six months with cocoa, cinnamon and a touch of cloves. The result is a roasted caramel and molasses nose with a rich brown head. Brewed with Cascade hops, this limited edition beer offers a 12.4 ABV and 60 IBUs, sure to put anyone in the holiday spirit. With only 75 cases available, craft beer lovers can stock up and check a few people off their holiday list starting this Friday, December 16 at 3pm when Overhang hits taps and shelves at The Woods tasting room in SoDo.
“My holiday wouldn’t be complete without a bottle of Overhang to share with family and friends,” said Joel VandenBrink, founder and CEO of Two Beers Brewing Co. “The flavors are perfect for a cozy evening in, followed by a laugh or two. It’s become a tradition we love to share.”
Featuring a collection of bold, complex ales – each reaching above 9.0 percent ABV and boasting its own distinct personality – the Alta Series has been handcrafted to offer a unique twist with every sip. Whether it’s the complexity obtained by aging in brandy barrels, the tartness imparted by fresh fruits or unique twist provided by a complex blend of spices, the Alta Series sets out to distinguish itself from the others and reach the upper limits.
Available first at The Woods tasting room (4660 Ohio Ave S), Overhang Bourbon Imperial Porter ($14) will be available in limited quantities throughout Seattle on tap and on shelves. Shared with Seattle Cider Company, The Woods – offering pints, tasters, packaged products and more – is also the perfect place to pick up gifts for all your favorite beer and cider lovers. Stop by the retail space for growlers, t-shirts, stocking stuffers, glassware and more.

I’ve been spending the past few years building some verticals of several different barrel aged beers, including Overhang, which is probably my favorite offering from Two Beers’ Alta Series, so I will definitely be picking up a few bottles to add to my ever-growing cellar. This Winter, however, my cellar should shrink signinficantly, as I plan to enjoy several of those verticals I’ve been building. I’m especially looking forward to the Overhang vertical. I had a bit of last year’s on tap recently at The Beer Junction in West Seattle and my instant reaction was: “Now that’s just like Christmas in a glass!”
Pick up your bottles of Overhang Bourbon Imperial Porter, and enjoy a glass (or two?) on tap starting this Friday at The Woods while enjoying some great food from Bread and Circuses. Overhang also makes a great Christmas gift for the craft beer barrel aged beer lovers in your life.
Drink responsibly and stay safe out there.
