4 Hands Brewing Co. News!!!!

Time to get excited!

I am told we the 4 Hands Brewing Bona Fide Stout aged in a Dry Fly Wheat Whiskey barrel will be bottled this month!  It went in barrel back on February 13, 2012 -- OVER A YEAR in barrel about 13 months.  4 Hands did not want to release it before it is ready.  "We will sell no wine [ or beer] before its time" -- Orson Wells for Paul Masson

Barrel Aged Bona Fide Stout with Espresso Coffee and Vanilla Beans
It is a barrel aged version of this beer....
"Bona Fide Imperial Stout is a collaborative effort with Goshen Coffee, a local fair trade coffee roaster. This beer is big, bold, and in your face. Bona Fide pours black as night with a smooth mouth feel. Aromas of espresso, dark chocolate, roasted malt, with nuances of vanilla. Drink now or cellar for up to 5 years. 9% Alc/Vol 65 IBU's"
