Double Barrel Catch Hell Release Info

Double Barrel Catch Hell – DOOM STOUT

The base of Double Barrel Catch Hell shattered our previous records of starting gravity, raw materials used, and boil times. After fermentation in stainless, it saw a nine-month slumber in Four Roses Small Batch barrels. With the base clearly having much more to give, we then racked it into Four Roses Single Barrel Select barrels for another 13-months. Typically, our program looks at spirit barrels less as finishing vessels, and more as a raw material that becomes an integrated ingredient — but for this beer, we really wanted to celebrate the character and intensity of the barrel. After 22-months of steamrolling through bourbon country, it bulldozed its way through one pound of vanilla beans per oak barrel and an eager dosing of Vietnamese cinnamon.

From inception, to the laborious brew day, a second round of barrels, and finally selecting and blending – Double Barrel Catch Hell has been gaining momentum with every step. Despite the sheer number of barrels and adjuncts this beer experienced, it has a towering cohesiveness to accompany the mind twisting experience of drinking it. With Double Barrel Catch Hell, you can expect expanding flavors of hazelnut praline, earthy dark chocolate, and bright cinnamon smothered in a chocolate mirror glaze. 15.3% ABV.


Sale will be through Universe – find the link below.

At 8:30 am, 30 mins prior to the on-sale release of tickets at 9 am, a waiting room will open.

At 9 am, the waiting room guests will be randomly funneled into a queue to purchase.

Limit is 1x2pk per person.

1x2pk = $39.99 (which includes a $2 gratuity to our staff).

Guests who purchase more than 1x2pk or 1×2 pk from both locations will be refunded.
