Stave Robber

The “Angel’s Share”, the term for the loss of liquid that evaporates during the barrel aging process.


Stave Robber, the term we use when referring to the “angel’s share” cuz nobody said the “angel” could have it.


With the help of our friends at Barrel Theory, we were able to get that beer back. So, we bottled it.


Introducing Stave Robber, a Barrel Aged Imperial Stout, made with love from our friends at Barrel Theory. It was brewed with Maris Otter barley, malted wheat, and chocolate wheat malt. Then we aged it for 15 months in bourbon & rye barrels and conditioned it on PISTACHIOS, TOASTED COCONUT, AND MADAGASCAR VANILLA BEANS.

Any bottles not purchased within that 24-hour window will be forfeited and be placed into the taproom inventory which will then be available for purchase the following Saturday (1/9) in our online store.

CAN YOU PROVE THAT EVAPORATION ISN’T REAL?

Do your own research, the truth is out there.

HOW MANY BOTTLES ARE AVAILABLE?

350.

CAN I REALLY BUY ONLY ONE?

That is correct. If you got more, you would be no better than that damn Stave Robber.

CAN I BUY MORE BEER WHEN I PICK UP MY BOTTLE?

For sure. You can order some beer online, and we can bundle those beers in with your bottle (simply write in the comment section that you also have a bottle of Stave Robber).

DO YOU HAVE LINKS? DO YOU HAVE ANY PROOF?

There is so much proof. Like, more proof than you could believe. We have so much evidence it would astound you. 

WILL THE BEER BE AVAILABLE IF I DON’T WIN THE RAFFLE?

There is a chance. Any bottles that aren’t paid for within the 24-hour window will go into the taproom inventory and will be available for purchase in our online store and in the taproom the following Saturday.

WILL STAVE ROBBER EVER BE ON TAP?

Probably not, but maybe someday. We’re keeping the taproom closed until dining indoors in taprooms is safe again.

WHAT ABOUT THE SCIENCE?

There are a lot of scientists that have disproven evaporation. Look it up.

Special Reserve Mallow

Your favorite pastry lager, the one and only 💀MALLOW💀, is back and this time it’s a little… special. We went full Dr. Frankenstein on it: upped the ABV, doubled the adjuncts, aged it in oak, wrapped it in gold and silver with diamonds oozing from the eye sockets, and dubbed it Special Reserve.


Introducing Special Reserve Mallow, an imperial lager brewed with Premium Pilsner malt, Barke Pilsner malt, Carafoam, milk sugar, double the marshmallows, and double the vanilla beans, then lagered and aged in our oak foeder.


Special Reserve Mallow is available NOW in the taproom for takeout and delivery. It will begin hitting local retail on Tuesday, December 28th. You will also be able to find it in BeerAdvocate’s Extreme Beer Fest: Cyberspace! Check back here on 12/28 for the full local delivery schedule.
