A Butler County brewery is offering a decidedly warmer option to Black Friday’s deal-of-the-day shopping.
FigLeaf Brewing Co. in Middletown will open its doors 10 a.m. Friday, Nov. 24, for its first-ever bottled beer release.
Originally brewed for the winter solstice, Barrel Aged Black Solstice Imperial Stout has “warm inviting notes of chocolate, raisins, and molasses that creates a smooth voluptuous body,” according to the brewery.
The brew has been aging in bourbon-and-rye whiskey barrels since Dec. 21, 2016, according to brewery officials.
In order to commemorate the brewery’s first year in business, it also will be bottling its Anniversary One Belgian Quad on Plums.
The easy-drinking Belgian brew “packs a fruity punch” with notes of plum, toffee and caramel, brewery officials said.
FigLeaf Brewing Co., 3387 Cincinnati Dayton Road, will have these 375-ml bottles available for purchase and will also offer the Barrel Aged Black Solstice and Anniversary Quad on tap.
Also available will be barbecue fare from food truck Smokin’ Bee-Bee-Q.
