It seems this year’s version of Bourbon Barrel Old Scrooge is a big hit. People are raving about the classic winter brew from Silver City Brewing and bottles of it are flying off the shelf. I don’t mean that literally, thankfully. Below I share some information about the beer, including information about where you might find it.
“With no exaggeration, this year’s release of the Bourbon Barrel Old Scrooge has gone nuts!” says Kurt Larsen of Silver City Brewing. “We are already out of individual bottles at the brewery (312 bottles in 2 days). Internally, from the brew team’s perspective, this is the best batch we’ve release yet.”
This is Silver City Brewing’s most highly decorated beer. And that’s really saying something considering the number of medals the brewery has won over the years. Among the awards, Scrooge brought home a Silver Medal from this year’s Great American Beer Festival in the Old Ale/Strong Ale category. Want to get your hands on some? Here are Kurt’s suggestion as to where the beer might be commandeered. Keep an eye out for it. Start asking about it.
