Houston’s Fort Bend Brewing is expanding its reach across the area and making its way into more restaurants, taverns, pubs, and retail outlets each day. The brewery just celebrated a year of great accomplishments and what better way to sanctify the moment than by releasing a brand new beer. That new beer is Grand Reserve 2013, a limited release beer and a style that you don't often find. Here is a description of this new Fort Bend Brewing product:
Grand Reserve 2013 is an English style Barleywine. Conditioned for 6 months, the soft hop bitterness provides a balance to the myriad sweet dark fruit, maple, brown sugar, and cocoa flavors you are sure to notice. With a warming finish, higher alcohols reminiscent of fortified wines like port and madeira linger on the palate. Alcohol by Volume: 11.1%
To spread the good cheer, Fort Bend Brewing is holding special release events at different locations around the city. Below are the dates, times, and places to gather for a sampling of this new FBBC ale:
