Palmetto Brewing Althea Bottle Release Details
(Charleston,SC) – Six months. That’s how long we’ve patiently waited to share this aged Imperial Russian Stout with you. We’ve waxed and sealed the bottles, labeled each by hand, and filled them with a rich, dark stout. Look forward to an amazing balance of dark currant, roasted barley, chocolate malts, and a subtle hint of licorice; the finish: sweet, like a fine cigar. Althea is here, and we’re excited for you to try it!
Bottles go on sale at 4:30pm in the tasting room.
Althea Release Party, 6:30pm until 10pm
• Music by The Reckoning: The Grateful Dead first played their song Althea (which served as name inspiration for the barrel-aged brew) at their 08/04/79 show. Local Dead tribute, The Reckoning, will play that show in its entirety at our tonight’s celebration
• Food by Graze available for purchase: The menu includes stout-infused cassoulet; braised onion and applewood bacon mac ‘n cheese; and double chocolate brownies with a porter buttercream and bourbon caramel sauce.
