A Note on This Beer
Today’s brew is for all you bold beer lovers; you “don’t water down my beer” fans; the ones wishing it was winter just so your favorite breweries would amp the ABVs back up to double digits.
Well, we think Barrel of Monks’ 10% ABV 2019 Grand Cru is exactly the brew to satisfy your insatiable craving for flavorful, boozy heights!
The only thing small about this ruby pour is the amount that exists. As their special anniversary brew, Barrel of Monks only releases a small-batch of Grand Cru once a year, and each one is a completely new recipe!
Known for exclusively brewing Belgian styles with incredible authenticity, the crew at Barrel of Monks sticks to classic roots by importing Belgian ingredients and developing their own yeasts. They even filter their Florida water just so they can add minerals that mimic the water in Bruges.
This makes today your fleeting chance to score this year's unique Imperial Belgian Red Ale vintage from our tiny stash before it disappears for good.
Despite the double-digit ABV, Grand Cru goes down remarkably smooth. It’s a glorious symphony of ripe strawberry notes, sweet vanilla, and luscious chocolate-dipped caramel all layered on top of rich, bready malts and enrobed in fluffy carbonation. In other words, you won’t taste the booze while you’re sipping, but boy, you will feel it!
So, if you don’t mess around with puny beers and you’re wishing it was winter so the ABV train could kick into high gear, this one’s for you.
With its bold flavors and impressive 10% ABV, 2019 Grand Cru has the power to transform any craft lover into a true boozehound. And once you go Grand, you’ll never look back.
