Yes, your wishes have finally come true! AleSmith Brewing’s legendary Barrel-Aged Speedway Stout with Vietnamese Coffee will be available in bottles for the first time.
AleSmith is proud to release this long-awaited barrel-aged version of our Russian Imperial Stout with Vietnamese coffee as part of their 2014 Reserve Series to coincide with San Diego Beer Week.
BARREL-AGED VIETNAMESE SPEEDWAY STOUT
AleSmith Brewing traditionally brew Vietnamese coffee, known as cà phê sữa đá, with a phin-style filter that gently percolates water through ground coffee. The result is a chocolaty and bold tasting coffee that perfectly complements the notes of oak, vanilla, and bourbon in this massive barrel-aged stout.
Starting Monday, November 10th at 11:00am, you will be able to purchase up to four (4) bottles of Barrel-Aged Vietnamese Speedway Stout. Please note; you will need to use your name to purchase each bottle. Once you place your order your name will be registered and any duplicate sales to the same name will be voided. They want to make this as fair as possible!
Please, USE ONLY YOUR NAME TO PURCHASE THE BOTTLES. YOUR PURCHASE IS JUST FOR YOUR BOTTLES. YOU CANNOT PURCHASE BOTTLES UNDER SOMEONE ELSE’S NAME OR FOR SOMEONE ELSE. IF YOU BUY THEM, YOU MUST PICK THEM UP.
Bottles can be picked up starting Saturday, November 15th at the AleSmith Tasting Room. Bottles can be retrieved during tasting room hours from Saturday, November 15th through Sunday, January 18th 2015.
