About Pulcinella Russian Imperial Stout
Pulcinella Russian Imperial Stout is released by Hi-Wire Brewing once-a-year in November. Named after the historical theatre figure who is said to have influenced the modern clown, this beer spends 10 months in Napa Valley Zinfandel, Kentucky bourbon, and St. Croix dark rum barrels. The complexity of the barrels impart big roast and molasses flavors that are paired with notes of chocolate and vanilla. Bottles of Pulcinella will be available for sale at the event for $12 with a limit of 6 bottles per person.
