New Release: Parish Brewing Grand Reserve
Holidays kick ass. Yeah they are a great time to spend with family and blah, blah, blah but it's also a time for breweries to release all their special holiday beers. Halloween through Christmas/Hanukkah we begin to see an influx of specialty beers hitting the shelves. Some think it can be overwhelming but it makes me feel like a kid in a candy store. I want to try them all! Locally we get some decent holiday release but I haven't seen one like this before. If I have, sorry I forgot about it.
On November 30th Parish Brewing will be releasing their Grand Reserve. This barleywine is only brewed once a year and comes in at 11% abv. According to the website there will be only 1300 bottles available fir purchase. I received a message from owner Andrew via Facebook and he stated that New Orleans will receive the most cases and will be available at specialty beer/wine shops. He also stated that Avenue Pub will have a specially made cask which will be served Friday and that there will be a select amount of kegs available around town.
Looking forward to getting this one! I will be grabbing a couple for drinking and storing.
