A Note on This Beer
When we heard rumbles that BeerAdvocate’s #5 ranked Brown Ale maestro was finally coming to bottles, we applauded until our hands stung and cheered until our throats were sore. Bravo for bourbon! Bravo for booze! Bravo for Firestone Walker’s Barrel-Aged Bravo!
This 13.2% ABV star has won the hearts of many with a 4.28 rating on BeerAdvocate and a 4.22 on Untappd. Previously a taproom-only performer, Bravo is now making its bottle debut -- meaning this toffee and fig laden, sultry bourbon-soaked baritone is finally available to taste at home. Bravo for bottles!
From its alluring mahogany pour, aromas of a finely crafted Bourbon Toddy cocktail with a lemon peel twist draw you closer. Once the ravishing caramel reverberates on the palate, a crescendo of oak spice and vanilla swells on the tastebuds with a delicate note of maple syrup. Then the booze comes rushing in -- and you’re blown back in your chair like the first time you heard Stravinsky.
Firestone Walker has been crafting Bravo since 2004, and it’s only become more of a masterpiece with 13 years of practice. Now’s your chance to experience bourbon barrel-induced ecstasy -- you never know when the maestro will return to the shadows once more, leaving us all in awe-struck silence…
