Gigantic Announces 20921 Massive Releases & The International Caramel Coffee Stout

New Beer, Thanksgiving & 2021 MASSIVE! Release

This week gives us a lot to be thankful for. To start things off we have a brand new beer!
The International Caramel Coffee Stout
Inspired by memories of whiling our days away in European cafés, we brewed this luxurious stout with notes of rich coffee and decadent caramel.  Now what was that waiter's name?
A coffee dosed with caramel is one of our favorite treats, so why not recreate that in a beer?! We used a ridiculous amount of British Crystal malt to get that intense caramel flavor. Then we dosed the beer with Stumptown Cold Brew to bring in the rich coffee flavor and a subtle caffeine pick me up, and finished on Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Beans.
The International is now available at both The Brewery and Champagne Lounge (5224 SE 26th Ave) and Robot Room at the Rocket Empire Machine (6935 NE Glisan).  Enjoy a glass in the taproom, grab some bottles to take home or order them for home delivery in Portland via the link below. You can also look for The International on draft and in 16.9oz refillable bottles throughout Oregon at better bars, bottle shops, restaurants and grocers, and along the west coast in CA and WA.

The International label art was created by Rob Reger.  Rob is the founder of Cosmic Debris, a San Francisco bay area design house that introduced the world to Emily the Strange. Emily is now an international icon for empowered young alternative girls. Reger has been designing Emily and her cats for over two decades and has generated millions of fans of the character. His sophisticated, surrealistic work explore the dark, entertaining, crossroads between desire and the absurd. See more of his work at RobRegerArt.com.

MASSIVE! Release

MASSIVE! Barleywine is being unleashed this Friday the 26th! We have been aging MASSIVE! in some amazing barrels and this years varietals do not disappoint. 
MASSIVE! Bourbon Barrel
We brew MASSIVE! each year with just one malt, and then boil it for over 8 hours to create a barleywine with a deep ruby color and rich malt flavor.  This year we chose Skagit Wintmalt, and then aged the beer in select bourbon barrels.  Enjoy the richness and intensity now or after years and years and years of aging.
MASSIVE! Small Batch Barrel Varietals
We also have MASSIVE! aged in Highland Scotch, Islay Scotch and Anejo Mezcal barrels. There is a very limited amount of these beers and we put it all in bottles.
Come by the Gigantic Taproom & Brewery and the Gigantic Robot Room this Friday to secure your bottles of this years vintages. Bottles are $15.

The MASSIVE! labels once again feature more amazing artwork by Portland artists AJ Fosik. See more of his incredible work by checking out his instagram page @AJFosik.
AJ Fosik is an artist who creates intricate, vividly colored three-dimensional pieces that reference folk art, taxidermy, and cultural rituals. Using hundreds of pieces of wood and found materials, he creates figurative and intricately designed three-dimensional works. His animal subjects and creatures are built using a complex assemblage of hand cut and varnished wood, painted in bright hues and layered into lattice patterns to create furry or feathered texture. Sharp teeth, claws and eyes emerge when the creatures are complete - some are constructed as freestanding sculptures while others are wall-mounted to a frame, referencing taxidermy practices.

Ideas of empathy and synthesis are a common duality in the work, whereby the anthropomorphized figures communicate the basic human condition. Totems and fetishes, as well as the “random, chaotic and arbitrary nature of existence,” fascinate Fosik; though less overt, the animals he creates represent a plethora of icons from various theologies, giving them the subversiveness of a cast of fictional, anti-religious gods. The artist delights in the endless interpretations the works have inspired in his viewers.

AJ Fosik has exhibited his works in numerous galleries throughout the United States, Europe and Asia.
