In just a few weeks, we’ll be sharing this year’s batch of Benthic.
Benthic Imperial Stout is a fortress of specialty malts, long boil times and density laid down in bourbon barrels. Benthic is conditioned on toasted coconut and whole coffee beans before packaging.
For variants this year, we have
Vanilla Benthic, our bourbon barrel-aged base conditioned on Madagascar Vanilla beans and toasted coconut
Double Double Benthic, a blend of bourbon and coconut rum barrel-aged imperial stout, conditioned on a double dose of toasted coconut and whole coffee beans
Apple Brandy Benthic, an apple brandy barrel-aged imperial stout conditioned on cinnamon and toasted coconut.
All Benthic + variants will be packaged in 16oz cans and we will be selling all packaged units online.

Due to what we’re expecting to be a high-demand on sale, there may be a small delay in receiving confirmation emails but be sure to re-check your email a few minutes after the sale and also check spam, junk mail folders, etc, if your tickets didn’t arrive and you received an Order Confirmation page
