They grow up so fast, don’t they? It’s been about three years since Westbrook opened its door to the public, and in keeping with tradition, the brewery has released its much-anticipated anniversary brew.
In addition, a few brand new brews will be on tap at the brewery this weekend to celebrate the occasion.
For its third anniversary, Westbrook brewed Orange Bliss, a 9.1% chocolate orange imperial stout. Early reports suggest it lives up to its name: a rich, chocolatey imperial stout with a strong orange-forward flavor. The beer was released in the tasting room late last week and hit distribution Tuesday. Expect to find it at your local beer shop soon.
Orange Bliss follows last year’s Cap’n Skoon’s Ballistic Stout and the first anniversary Mexican Cake.
And starting Thursday, December 19, the brewery will celebrate three years of great SC beer by tapping some special new treats. In addition to Orange Bliss, Mr. Chipper (a Flanders Red aged in red wine barrels for nearly three years) and Rhubarb Remix (Weisse Weisse Baby with rhubarb and strawberries added) will be available on draft and in bottles at the brewery’s tasting room.
