Dock Street Rare Bottle Release 2011 Details
Prisoner of Hell ‘11, Barrel Aged Prince Myshkin ‘10, Barrel Aged Barley Wine ’09 & 2011 Munique Logo Glass
It’s that time of year for Dock Street Brewery’s limited bottle release. This year we have a variety of specialty brews. This calls for celebration!
Come to Dock Street on November 22nd (5:00pm – 8:00pm) and expect great food, great beer, great music and smiling faces as we release 750 ml bottles of our Barleywine Style Ale from 2009, 2010 Barrel Aged Prince Myshkin Russian Imperial Stout, and this year’s batch of Prisoner of Hell Belgian Strong Ale. A small quantity of gold logo Munique glasses are on sale for the first time as well. One (yes, just one) sixtel of Dock Sreet Flemish Red Sour Ale is pouring from the taps. All of this excitement makes us want to sing, so we invited the epic-folky talents of On the Water to perform at 9pm.
About the beers. Dock Street Barleywine Style Ale 2009 Vintage was brewed with the best of both American and English traditions. It was hopped in the kettle with copious amounts of Brewer’s Gold and English East Kent Golding hops, to a bracing 76 IBU’s. Its massive maltiness and tremendous bitterness are partnered with the burn from 10.5% ABV. All of these intense characteristics are married through extended aging at cellar temperatures, 10 months of aging in oak Pinot Noir barrels and an additional 24 months of cellaring in the bottle. The result is a sensual synthesis of the worlds of beer, oak, and wine.
Last year we released Barrel Aged Prince Myshkin Russian Imperial Stout. We reserved a handful of bottles and let them quietly age in our cellars. Dock Street’s Prince Myshkin Russian Imperial Stout is brewed with a huge amount of malt and a large percentage of dark roasted barley to give it that signature midnight black appearance, caramel colored head, and massive body. This batch was aged in Hungarian Pinot Noir barrels for 11 months before bottle aging in our cellars for 12 months. The barrels imparted wonderfully delicate notes of vanilla, coconut, and mocha to the flavor and aroma.
Dock Street Prisoner of Hell is devilishly good. Upfront you can expect a subtle toasty malt character which moves quickly into notes of citrus fruits and spices. It finishes with a peppery, pleasant heat making this Belgian style golden strong ale dangerously drinkable. We’ve hand bottled just 120 bottles. Come in and get them while you can!
All beers are available in a Holiday Gift Set of any combination of bottles and/or the Munique logo glass. While supplies last. Prices vary.
Bring in the holiday season with us on November 22nd and get your hands on a perfect holiday gift. And hey, if you end up ‘gifting’ it to yourself, we’re not judging.
About the band. West Philly’s On the Water is the rootsy, weird answer to Fletcher VanVliet’s other musical arm Da Comrade. This band of musical misfits stomps, shouts and hollers with fervent obsession yet brings you moments as delicate and tense as a silken web.
