Hello, tasty beverages! That photo right there was shot earlier today at the Choc brewery in Krebs. That’s Choc’s newest seasonal offering, Winter Stout, almost ready to be shipped out. Choc reports the beer should ship at the start of November and then be in stores possibly as early as Nov. 4. Or you could get a sneak preview and go to the International Stout Day celebration on Nov. 3 at TapWerks in Oklahoma City. Some variation of the beer will likely be involved in firkin format, I’m told. As for the regular version that will be in stores, it will be 6% ABV and include Columbus and cascade hops on the front end and a dry-hopping with centennial and citra hops. It’ll be available in 12 oz. bottles and on tap. The beer will have a limited run from November to January.
