Our ’17 variant of Barrel-Aged HEAVY BOOTS OF LEAD Imperial Stout becomes available on tap and in bottles Friday. This version was matured in Rye Whiskey oak barrels and given a second infusion of vanilla and cacao. Outrageously smooth and lush, for those looking for a more classic approach to a BA Imperial Stout than our ’16 version, here’s your brew.


DEAN faithful are perhaps the most devoted of all our patrons, and for those of you (you know who you are) take note: This batch now on tap will be the last one before the Fall, and it’s a good one – we played with a different yeast strain and gave this batch a double dry-hop (shhhhh). We had planned to bottle this this week, but the demand for draft from our accounts was so high we had to shelve bottling plans until the Fall, but rest assured we will be bottling this brew then.


Friday we’ll have a freshly kegged batch of DOES ANYBODY REMEMBER LAUGHTER? IPA on tap. Bottles next week.
