In December 2011 we released Immelmann: the first in our Barrel Roll Series. On Saturday, September 14th at 11am, this Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Porter returns to our Tasting Room along with some very special releases, food from The Big Easy, and 3 bands to celebrate this release and the end of summer.
Immelmann starts with our Chocolate Porter, brewed with 2-Row, Munich, Cara-Munich, Chocolate and Dark Chocolate Malts, Oats and Cocoa Nibs, along with whole Vanilla Beans. It is then aged in Bourbon Barrels for six months and blended with twenty percent fresh Porter to produce enticing aromas of chocolate, coffee, tobacco, bourbon and sweet malt along with a complex pallet of dark roast chocolate, oak and maple followed by a subtle vanilla finish. This is an intense, yet refined flavor experience to be savored today or aged to be enjoyed at your leisure. 750mL bottles are available for $20 with a 3 bottle limit per person.
We’ll also have a few special beers available today in half pints:
- Vintage Chocolate Porter
- 2013 Immelmann, Wheat Whiskey Barrel Aged
- 2013 Immelmann, Rye Whiskey Barrel Aged
- 2012 Immelmann, Rye Whiskey Barrel Aged
Along with Chocolate Porter and 2013 Immelmann, these beers will all be available on a special Immelmann Flight for $14. Plus we’ll have a VERY limited amount of our bourbon barrel aged double Alt-Bier, Barrel Roll #7: Tailslide, on the twin engine cask.
As summer comes to a close on the patio, we’ll be celebrating with three amazing bands you shouldn’t miss!
- 3-5pm: Soul Opus, Coachella Valley reggae
- 6-8pm: Natural Heights, Riverside reggae rock
- 9-10pm: Naïve Thieves, Riverside Indie Rock
And finally The Big Easy Sandwich will be here from 12-8pm serving muffaletta and Creole roast beef sandwiches, blackened fish and beer battered tacos, and Cajun spicy and sweet potato fries!
