Eclipse - Grand Cru (2017)
FiftyFifty Brewing Co.
A Note on This Beer
We didn’t think any more of today’s 2017 Eclipse Grand Cru existed, but then FiftyFifty delved into their personal cellar and hooked us up with a super limited stash!
Eclipse series brews are among the Top 25 Beers from Draft Magazine AND Top Ten Beers You’ll Never Taste from Esquire. Plus they’ve medaled at just about every beer contest there is.
And Grand Cru is the most sought after in the series! It’s a unique blend comprised of all the variants from the 2017 Series. Which means each Grand Cru blend is different than years past and future because FiftyFifty uses a distinctive catalog of barrels from some of the best distilleries in the country every year.
In other words, you will never find this bottle anywhere ever again. Stash this one in your cellar and you’ll have something to knock the socks off even the craftiest Stout guru. Or gift it to that Dark Beer loving couple on your list this wedding season and they can pop the cork on their one-year anniversary.
It’s bound to be better than anything on their registry!
Chocolate, woody bourbon, and spicy fruit notes are just some of the flavors that roll onto the tongue. Look for the gentle peppery spice of Willet Bourbon, the tobacco thumbprint of Cuvee Rye, and the apple toffee of Evan Williams. Each sip is like a kaleidoscope of top-shelf whiskey flavors all circling around the espresso-chocolate signature of the multi-award winning Stout.
A beer this celebrated shouldn’t exist unless you get to try it, and today you actually can! This beer will bring instant prestige to your cellar, and the day you cut away the gold wax seal and bask in the smooth complexities of 2017 Grand Cru is a day you’ll remember and brag about for years.
