Mark your calendars: Columbia’s Conquest will release The Finisher, its highly desired 17.5% imperial stout, on Saturday, January 25.
Conquest has long-planned to release the massive imperial stout – brewed with brown sugar and honey and fermented with champagne yeast – around the time of its first anniversary. And after fermenting for a few months, the beer will soon be bottled and readied for sale at a special release party.
Due to state law, the beer cannot legally be sold on draft, so it’ll be released in 22 oz. bombers only. If you’ve been to the Conquest tasting room, you’ve seen the design for the label artwork (affectionately known as “Angry Jesus”) looming over the bar. No word yet on per-person bottle limits or how many bottles will be available.
In addition to the release of The Finisher, Conquest will also debut its 10.5% Brutus imperial stout and possibly another unannounced new release. Plus, there will be a food truck rodeo featuring nearly every mobile food vendor in the Capital City.
