Albert Le Coq Imperial Extra Double Stout...$6.99 / 9.3oz
A. Le Coq & Co was founded in 1807 and at the start of the 20th century production was brought from London to Tartu, where the brewing of A. Le Coq Extra Double Stout began. This was a beer that in 1912 brought A. Le Coq the title of official court supplier to the Russian throne and was allegedly the favourite beer of Nicholas II of Russia. The tsar enjoyed eating oysters, which were served with a vinaigrette sauce made from Imperial Extra Double Stout.
This is the first time we have been able to get their other beers from their Estonian brewery.
