Beer Updates For Tonight’s Christmas In July at Blue 5 (7/17)

Dry Irish StoutAs if you needed another reason to attend Blue 5’s Christmas In July celebration of typically cooler weather beers, which is kicking off tonight (July 17th) at 5:00, here is just a bit of an update to those beers I listed a couple days ago that will be likely also making an appearance:

Stone WOOtstout 3.0 – The latest installment of the collaboration beer from Stone Brewing and friends.  This version of the immense Imperial Stout was once again brewed with cocoa, pecans, wheat and rye, with the twist that part of last year’s version was actually blended into this year’s.

Harviestoun Brewery Old Engine Oil English Porter – lives up to the name in appearance, is deliciously slick, with big roasty and coffee flavors and aromas.  If you’ve never had it, do not pass it up.

JW Lees 25th Anniversary Harvest Ale – English Barleywine.  Again, if you’ve never had any from this line of barleywines before, it will be an experience to savor.  Incredibly smooth and yes, fairly sweet, but you’ll easily forgive the beer for that due to its immense complexity and depth of flavors.

Hardywood Park’s Bourbon Barrel Aged Chocoate Raspberry Stout, made with “loads of chocolate malt, cocoa nibs, and late harvest” raspberries.

Here are the rest, including the ones I listed a couple days ago, in no particular order:  Hardywood Park’s Gingerbread Stout (aged), Foothills Sexual Chocolate Imperial Stout, Ballast Point’s Sea Monster Imperial Stout, Rogue Brewing’s (2013) Double Chocolate Stout, Schlafly’s Chocolate Milk Stout and Christmas Ale, Avery’s The Beast (2013 version), Sunken City’s Barrel Aged John Henry’s Hammer Imperial Stout, New Holland Dragon’s Milk Bourbon barrel aged Imperial Stout, and Southern Tier’s Warlock Imperial Stout brewed with Pumpkin.

Cheers to stout “season” in July!
