Minneapolis, MN – It’s nearly February, and fans of coffee stouts already know that means the return of War & Peace is imminent. Beginning at noon on Saturday in our taproom, it will be available — as is the case with all Garage Series — for a very limited period of time. The taproom will be offering $6 (10 oz) pours and 750mL bottles to go for $15 each (limit 2, until we run out). To add to the fun, our friends from Peace Coffee will be there sampling their delightful brews as well.
In the following weeks, you’ll happen upon War & Peace around the metro on draft and in bottles. Mark your calendar for Thursday, February 6th, when Butcher & the Boar will be tapping not only one of the first War & Peace kegs, but also Patience and one of just a few kegs of Libertine that’s been aged in special Butcher & the Boar edition Knob Creek bourbon barrels. Yum.
Never had War and Peace? It’s our Russian Imperial Stout conditioned with whole bean Peace Coffee in the tanks. It’s an epic work of beer, featuring historic quantities of chocolate malt, roasted barley, and dark roast Peace Coffee. Like Tolstoy’s masterpiece, it may take some time to finish, but by the end, we think you’ll find yourself better for the effort.
