Henderson’s Beast

Imperial Amber Ale 12%

After nine months’ hibernation in bourbon barrels, The Beast has emerged. It is big, malty, heady & complex. It is a gentle beast, to be sure, but powerfully tasty. Henderson’s Beast is our way of saying thank you to all of you who’ve helped make brewing beer for our city the Best! (This is an annual-release, limited-edition, bourbon barrel-aged version of Best.)
