SweetWater Brewing rounds off the year with Happy Ending Imperial Stout

See also

You can start looking for a belated holiday gift on shelves and taps this week now that SweetWater Brewing Company (Atlanta, Georgia) has released their latest batch of Happy Ending Imperial Stout.

It is often said that the end of one story is just the start of another, and SweetWater's Happy Ending lives and dies by the same philosophy. Not only is Happy Ending there for you to ensure 2013 culminates on a high note, but it will also provide you with a comforting hand to carry you blissfully into 2014. This 9% ABV Imperial Stout is pure magic, and that is why it turns up on SweetWater's brewing calendar as both the first and last Catch & Release seasonal offering each and every year. If you are unfamiliar with Happy Ending, you should know that this beer keeps things interesting by providing a level of complexity that allows you to enjoy soft, sweet, malty goodness alongside the subtle, hoppy aggressiveness that makes SweetWater beers so great. For more info, here's the press release description of Happy Ending:

SweetWater’s brewers are closing out 2013 by delivering a Happy Ending to all, and to all a good night. The Imperial Stout is brewed with Centennial and Willamette hops, and finished off with a dry-hop addition of Cascade and Simcoe hops. Measuring up at 9% ABV, this award-winning beer promises to have fans showing their “O” face.

Happy Ending is available now in six packs of 12 oz. bottles, 22 oz. hand waxed bombers, and on draft. It is available wherever you normally find SweetWater Catch & Release offerings in Alabama and throughout the Southeast. Just make sure you track down your supply of Happy Ending before it disappears in February.

If you are a lover of Imperial Stouts, Happy Ending is one that cannot be missed. It is a beer that can be enjoyed either fresh or with a few years on it, so I suggest you grab several bottles while you can to experience this brew as it matures. It also comes in handy if you want to be that guy or girl that gives everyone a Happy Ending at the New Year's party. Either way, everyone wins. Prost!
