2019 Big Hugs
December is for Big Hugs, our Imperial Drinking Stout.
Year in and year out we tweak this beer according to our liking and work with the Dark Matter coffee wizards on their most up to date extraction method. We are now 11 years in on this beer.
At Half Acre Beer Company, we try to brew for all occasions ~ laidback pale ales, hop drenched DIPAS, stiff-cool pilsners and beefcake barrel-aged imperial stouts.
Big Hugs is a category all of its own. Deeper than your average stout at 10% ABV and hit with high caliber coffee for an animated punch; the body remains balanced at a consumable level and you don’t have to share it unless you want to.
Join us to celebrate Hugs, and the glory of stouts in general at our Balmoral brewery on Saturday, Dec 7th from 11am-5pm.

Big Hugs Imperial Coffee Stout (4pk 16oz cans / $22 tax-inclusive day of)

Big Hugs has always been a favorite of ours. Gathering together in December to drink caffeine-laced stout and talk about the edges on things is a part of closure for the year. We appreciate your attendance and hope to see you again this year, and next.
