A Note on This Beer
You know what country you’ve probably never tried a beer from? Freakin’ Estonia! If you’re anything like me, you may even have trouble finding the country on a map (hint: it’s on the Baltic Sea.)
Estonia’s craft beer scene is young but totally blowing up, and Põhjala Brewery is at the forefront of this explosion. These guys are so locally loved that they hold all of the Top Ten Beers in Estonia on Untappd!
That’s why Craft Beer and Brewing named them one of the Five International Breweries to Watch and Beer Connoisseur called them out as the leader of the “Estonian beer revolution.” Add a bottle or two from this brewery to your collection and your Euro-craft credibility will go through the roof!
And boy, do we have a bottle for you!
Today’s 4.05 UT-rated Cherry Bänger Imperial Stout clocks in at a massive 12.5% ABV! It tastes like a dark chocolate-covered cherry with just a hint of espresso bean. Cocoa nibs and vanilla beans in the brew amp up the creamy mocha flavors while fresh cherries provide a jammy sweetness and slightly tart complexity. And the big ABV vanishes completely in a thick, chewy mouthfeel.
This is your chance to taste not just a brand new brewery, but a brand new international brewing scene! Introduce your buds to Põhjala and they’ll think you’re some kind of Euro beer guru.
