Firestone Walker Dark & Stormy Returning For 2018

Firestone Walker Dark & Stormy Returning For 2018

This morning we bring you the 2018 packaging for Dark & Stormy from Firestone Walker Brewing in Paso Robles, CA.  This version is a Rum barrel-aged blended ginger and lime ale.  The beer will hit 11.1%-AbV & 20 IBU and it will be released in 12oz bottles (3000 cases produced).  This beer was previously release don Black Friday and here are the details from last year’s release from Firestone Walker:

From the jungles of Jamaica to the barrel room at Firestone Walker Brewing Company comes Dark & Stormy—an exotic mashup of Helldorado and Velvet Merkin aged in rum barrels with a touch of hand-zested lime and ginger. Like its namesake cocktail, Dark & Stormy combines a rich sunset color with spicy rum goodness. Helldorado (blonde barleywine, 80%) sets the tone with its signature honey-coconut character, while Velvet Merkin (oatmeal stout, 20%) rounds out the blend with a hint of rich roastiness. Both beers were aged in barrels sourced from a leading Jamaican rum producer, imbuing Dark & Stormy with delectable rum qualities unlike anything Firestone Walker has offered before.
