New Beer Friday 11/19/10

We only have one new beer this week, but it's a doozie.

The final beer in Sierra Nevada's 30th Anniversary Brewers Reserve series has finally arrived in Salt Lake. The Oak Aged Ale or Grand Cru is a blend of Sierra Nevada's most acclaimed ales: Oak-Aged Bigfoot Barleywine, Celebration Ale and fresh Pale Ale all blended together and generously dry hopped.

Those that I have talk to that have had it describe it as a great American Strong Ale.

Like it's three predecessors, the Oak Aged Ale is a one time release and won't be around long. You may find some at area liquor stores but you best bets will be at The Bayou and Beerhive.

Also, We are at capacity for the Holiday Tasting. No more RSVP are being accepted. I apologize if you couldn't get in this year, but we have limited space.

Cheers!

Any Idea which state stores have this one? If the price is decent, I might go find one also.

Prost,

IF they get them, they would most likey be at the downtown Wine Stores and the Foothill store.

The Bayou and Beerhive get beers sooner because they are the primary purchasers of these special releases.

Thanks Mikey,

That is what I suspected. I know a guy at the Foothill store. I will see if he will let me know if they are expected to get any. He is the beer guy there.

Honestly, I am more looking forward to Abyss arriving soon. Their website says release on Dec 1, so maybe by the Holiday Beer Tasting I will have some.

Prost,
Scott

Hey Mikey,

You've got a great blog here with some interesting posts. I'm involved with something similar here in Australia, namely an online craft beer store and blog. As such I would be keen to swap links with you if you're interested?

You can email me back at: william@beercartel.com.au

Cheers

Scott,
At our staff tasting this weekend we popped open a 2009 Abyss. Man is that beer aging well. Absolutely incredible. Could probably handle a few more years even.
