Cracking Open the Cellar: KARL’s 23rd Anniversary Beer Re-Release
In honor of our 25th anniversary, we wanted to give our fans the opportunity to get their hands on some of our rarest releases. Each week, leading up to the debut of Karl’s 25th anniversary Doppelbock at our annual Changing of the Barrels event, we will be re-releasing extremely limited quantities of our past anniversary beers. Each will be available exclusively at the Karl Strauss Tasting Room on consecutive Saturday’s in January leading up to the event. Limit 1 Bottle per person.
The third release, available starting 1/24/14 is our 23rd Anniversary Old Ale. Historically, Old Ales were aged upwards of a year, hence the name “Old.” They range in color from dark amber to dark brown, with aromas being sweet, malty, and fruity. We aged ours in oak barrels for a full year before bottling, and the result is an unblended and unmistakably complex strong ale with rich layers of toffee, molasses, dried figs, warming bourbon, and toasted oak.
We’re excited to be able to share these great beers with our fans once again, feel free to share your thoughts and tasting notes on these special releases in the comments below or by reaching out to us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Cheers!
