Half Acre Big Hugs Imperial Coffee Stout – Initial 2015 Release Details
(Chicago,IL) – This is the 7th year we’ve brewed this stout. It’s always been a perpetual battle of misaligned forces; a dumb kitten that destroys with joy and rips at forgotten eras, far away places and warm traditions. Big Hugs walks the line between those who are fed and those who feed themselves.
We brew the beer to hold energy and drudge, to have a soft core and powerful impact. Each year places new focus on the base of approach and how we select and introduce coffee. We work with our friends at Dark Matter to collide under one more meaningful elixir.
This Big Hugs Release will flow as many have before it. Separate lines for cash and credit, with Dark Matter Coffee, food to line your insides, and a long list of reasons to stick around the brewery for a while.
This year, we also introduce Big Hugs Imperial Vanilla Coffee Stout. A 50/50 split of Tahitian and Madagascar vanilla beans create a docile line within a beastly heart.
We also turned the merchandise levels way, way up. It’s been too long since we’ve thrown Big Hugs on a tshirt and we made up for it this year. There will also be a specialty bag of Big Hugs coffee beans and a brand new glass to shove in your cupboard.
We will start selling Big Hugs, Vanilla Big Hugs and the gear of your dreams on Sunday, December 13th at 11AM. We hope you can make it.
Further details to come.
