(Boulder, CO) – Twisted Pine Brewing Company is set to release its 2016 Northstar Imperial Porter on Friday, December 9th. Available in the taproom on draught as well as in 22-ounce bottles, this annually-brewed American-style imperial porter is the quintessential winter warmer with malt-driven flavors of molasses, cocoa, and toffee at 9.5% ABV. According to Head Brewer Kay Witkiewicz, “This year’s batch is already tasty, but I can’t wait for the flavors to really come together a couple of years down the line.”
In addition, Twisted Pine Brewing Company will tap a limited amount of the 2014 vintage on Friday, December 16th, in anticipation of the grand vertical tasting on Saturday, December 31st, at 6 pm. Six vintages of Northstar Imperial Porter, beginning with the 2011 version, will be paired with four courses, including a Northstar-infused risotto with seared duck breast as the entrée. Tickets for this event are on sale online at twistedpinebrewing.com as well as in the taproom.
