Craft Brewing and Distilling News for December 5, 2019December 5, 2019
•Wyoming Whiskey has announced the January 2020 launch of a 7-year-old bottling of Outryder Straight American Whiskey. The 50% abv whiskey is bottled in bond and made from a blend of two whiskies: one from a mash of 48% rye, 40% corn, and 12% malted barley; and the other a Bourbon distilled from 68% corn, 20% rye, and 12% malted barley. 577 6-packs will be available throughout the U.S. for a suggested price of $75. Edrington handles sales, marketing, and distribution for Wyoming Whiskey.
•Alaskan Brewing Co. will release the latest offering from its Pilot Series on this month. Alaskan Imperial Bock is brewed in the style of an Eisbock, a German style typically created by freezing a doppelbock to boost intensity. This release was instead created by brewing a higher gravity beer to achieve a higher strength—12.5% abv, in this case. It will be available throughout Alaskan Brewing’s 25-state distribution area. Alaskan is the 19th-largest craft brewer in the U.S., according to the Brewers Association.Subscribe to Shanken News Daily’s Email Newsletter, delivered to your inbox each morning.
