Dogfish 120 Minute IPA

Dogfish Head’s IPA lineup breaks down into 60 Minute, 61 Minute, 75 Minute, 90 Minute, and 120 Minute. “Dogfish 120″ as it’s called, is the most boozy.

Those that don’t, thanks to restrictive (read: archaic and stupid) laws: Georgia, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Vermont, South Carolina, and Ohio.

The next round of Dogfish Head 120 Minute returns in February, 2015. Shelves in legal to sell states shortly after.

Style: Imperial IPA

Wild Heaven Eschaton has finally arrived in bottles. The Belgian-style quadrupel as been a bottle hopeful since its debut in 2011.

Eschaton is a one-of-a-kind oaked all-malt Quadrupel (or “Belgian Strong Dark” if you prefer) that abounds with dark fruit and pit fruit flavors as well as earthy spiciness. Vanilla oak and warm viniferous notes assert themselves as the beer warms to reveal additional layers of delicious complexity.

“Eschaton” is greek for the end of the world, or climax of history. Wild Heaven Eschaton is available in 12oz bottles, and draft while the world goes on. (Maybe a little bit after too.)

The brewery is also introducing cans in 2015.

Style: Belgian-style Quadrupel (Aged on Pinot Noir Oak Chips)
Availability: 12oz bottles (New), Draft. Year-round.

Red Brick Imperial Stout

Red Brick Brewing (Atlanta, GA) is taking a hint from the lovers of 20th Anniversary Imperial Stout, when it comes to their upcoming Imperial Stout release.

The 20th Anniversary release (imperial stout aged in bourbon barrels) was one of the brewery’s fastest selling, and most desired barrel aged beers to date. This February, the brewery will launch another rendition of the stout offering.

The Red Brick brewing team recreated the base imperial stout, and has been aging half of it in oak bourbon barrels.

It features big notes of dark chocolate and espresso beans with a mild oak character.

Look for Red Brick Imperial Stout to hit shelves in February, 2015. Part of the brewery’s Brick Mason Series.

Style: Imperial Stout (50% Barrel Aged. Bourbon.)

Availability: 12oz bottles, Draft. Limited release.

Release: February, 2015

One of the most sought after beers in the world, Russian River Pliny the Younger returns again on February 6th, 2015.

Russian River calls it a “triple” ipa, basically for the motherlode of hops and big ABV that goes along with each glass. Younger is only available on draft (typically in 10oz pours) and never available for growler fills. 2015 marks the 11th year for this brew.

“It’s on! Eric and RJ are brewing the first batches of Pliny the Younger at the pub. It is our 11th year brewing this seasonal winter brew. RJ is new to our brewing team and thought Vinnie may have made a typo on the recipe. Yep. That’s the right amount of hops for Younger! Release date is still set for Friday, February 6th! More details coming soon!”

Extremely limited release of Russian River Pliny the Younger begins the week of February 6th, 2015, and over the course of two weeks at the pub after the first day. Distributors in San Jose, Sacramento, Oregon, Colorado, and Philadelphia will receive their kegs sometime in February.

Style: Imperial IPA

Availability: Draft only

Arrivals: 2/6/2015 (at Russian River). Extremely limited other markets, TBA

Another one we can’t get in GA because of antiquated laws.

D’Extra takes this concept to the next level. What 120 Minute IPA is to 60 Minute IPA, D’Extra is the D’Etre. We’re pushing the limits of what a Belgian yeast can do (and we’ve discovered that’s somewhere in the ballpark of 15% to 18% ABV!)

Dogfish Head Raison D’Extra will be available again in 12oz bottles. Due to ABV, there will be state limitations.

Style: Belgian Strong Dark (w/ Raisins, Brown Sugar)

Availability: 12oz Bottles.

Return: December, 2014

In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar until creamy. Beat in the banana and then beat in eggs and vanilla until well combined. Reduce mixer speed to low and beat in flour mixture until just combined. Divide 1/2 of the batter into a separate bowl and stir in the Nutella.

Dessert is best poured. And the brewers at Perennial agree. So we dreamt up a beer that would bering together chocolate sweetness, Belgian yeast, deeply roasted malts and just the right shake of salt to pour a creamy stout worth of a cherry on top.

Style: Belgian-Style Imperial Stout (w/ Chocolate, Salt)
