Capital Brewery to Release Cabernet Aged Dark Doppelbock

capital brewery

Middleton, Wisc. — Capital Brewery is releasing a very limited, tap-only, version of their Dark Doppelbock that has been aged in Cabernet Barrels. Available at Capital Brewery and a handful of bars and restaurants starting the first week of December.

The 2016 Cabernet Barrel Aged Dark Doppelbock has been aging in fresh California Cabernet Barrels for over 10 months. This mother of all doppelbocks has been taken a step further. Notes of dark fruits and chocolate waft through the nose. The creamy, white chocolate foam tops the glass. The rich brown body hosts a plethora of dark malts and mysterious fruits. The smooth character of the body only accentuates these flavors.

The Cabernet Barrel Aged Dark Doppelbock clocks in at nearly 8% Alc./Vol. making it a true winter warmer that, nestled between the dark fruit and robust chocolate nose and flavor, houses a real holiday spirit.

This very limited release, tap only, beer will be available starting the first week of December at only a handful of bars and restaurants along with our on-site Bier Stube at Capital Brewery – 7734 Terrace Avenue, Middleton, WI 53562.

Founded on March 14, 1984, Capital brewed its first batch of beer in the spring of 1986. The company has received over 240 major awards in both domestic and international competitions in over 15 categories.
