Lagunitas Bloodshot Few Brew
This past summer, Bloodshot joined forces with Evanston, IL distillery Few Spirits to release a small batch bourbon whiskey. After we bottled and peddled 500 bottles to the masses, our longtime drinkin' buddies at Lagunitas took the bourbon barrels and concocted the “Bloodshot Few Brew.” Brewed at Lagunitas’s Chicago brewery, the beer is composed of Lagunitas Imperial Stout aged in the exact barrels from which the Bloodshot/Few Spirits bourbon was derived. The brewers added some smoked tea tips resulting in a smoky, tobacco-y, dark chocolate-y aroma with slight bourbon-like notes. The release is part of Lagunitas’s OneHitter series and will only be available on draft in select bars and music venues. It's tapped in Chicago, as well as additional American cities to be announced.
The beer weighs in at a whopping 13% ABV, so pull up your britches, tie your shoes, and be careful.
Our resident world-renowned visual artist Jon Langford applied his signature painting style to a Bloodshot Few Brew barrel (pictured to the left) at Lagunitas Chicago to create the official artwork for the collaborative beer. The barrel will be on display at release events at Schubas and then at the Lagunitas Chicago Taproom. Lagunitas grabbed elements of the painting to create the official tap sticker and beer artwork.
Due to the myriad nuances of the American alcohol distribution system, we cannot sell this beer on our site. Plus, it's draft-only, and you can't download a beer. Due to the same reasons, we also don't know exactly when and where it will be available, but we do know these watering holes have it on draft right now. More to come as 2016 rolls on!
