To say we are excited is an understatement. After months of working on art and design, we are releasing our Skillet Donut Stout in 16oz cans on Saturday, June 6th 2015 at our taproom at 2PM and distributed to retailers soon after. Our cans will be sold for $4.50 single cans with a 1 case per person limit (there are 24 cans in a case).
We will be opening from 1-2PM on Saturday just for Skillet Donut stout can and The Crucifix Aged in Red Wine Barrels bottle sales ONLY. These sales will take place at our back bar. Our taproom will open at 2PM for draught beer sales and continued can and bottle sales, if available. We will have complimentary doughnuts made with a Skillet Donut Stout glaze from Vortex Doughnuts during the pre-sale hour.
Skillet Donut Stout, a breakfast stout is made from a blend of nine barley malts, a healthy scoop of oats, milk and molasses sugars, and our favorite blend of freshly roasted Counter Culture Coffee beans. Welcome the day with rich cocoa, smooth caramel, dark fruits and an abundance of diverse coffee aroma.
Each can has two original illustrations by the ever so talented, David Paul Seymour. Much like our name sake, the can artwork captures a “light side” and a “darkside” with powerful and unprecedented imagery.
Skillet Donut Stout cans will be sold in 16oz single cans at both our taproom and select retailers. All of our beer has been pre-sold and we anticipate the amount allocated to our taproom to sell quickly. We will be brewing and canning skillet every 3-4 weeks. We have plans to can Scythe Rye IPA and Bolo Coconut Brown this month and next.
We advise that consumers drink skillet donut stout fresh to get the most out of the coffee aroma and flavor. Much like hops, coffee will dissipate with time. Fresh is best!
