Surly just won two awards at the 5th Annual Festival of Wood and Barrel-aged Beer sponsored by the Illinois Craft Brewer’s Guild. They took a gold in the Strong Dark Beer category for their Bourbon One and a silver in the Strong Porter & Stout category for Darkness. Fitger’s Brewhouse followed with a bronze for their Edmund Imperial Stout.
There’s also a bit of a teaser in Surly’s latest e-mail blast regarding 750ml bottles of Darkness:
We will soon have an announcement on the sale of Darkness 750 ML bottles at the brewery.
Excellent. Being able to cellar some Darkness is something I’ve been waiting for.
I’d love to see Fitger’s bottle in 750’s.
That would be excellent!
Who has the will power to cellar any of it? I would have to put some in my gun safe and have someone change the combo on it.
