New Glarus Brewing Company‘s Unplugged series are limited edition brews, and once the batch is gone the brew becomes one of the Unplugged ‘Beers We Have Known and Loved’ and is only relived in fond memories. However, the results of the vote for their 2010 line-up made it apparent that there was an overwhelming longing for the return of a particular Unplugged brew, ‘Cherry Stout’. Master Diploma Brewer Daniel Carey’s first Unplugged release of 2010 and the return of ‘Cherry Stout’ allows us to recall those happy memories and make a few more.
Hundreds of ballots were cast from fans in New Glarus Brewing Company’s yearly vote in the fall (2009), where fans were allowed to help determine which beers are brewed for them. When the votes were all tallied up, it was apparent that ‘Cherry Stout’ had lasting and loyal support, and that friends wanted more. Originally 7th in New Glarus Brewing Company’s Unplugged Series, Cherry Stout has won a Gold Medal at both the 2005 and 2006 Great American Beer Festival in Denver, CO in the Wood and Barrel Aged Beers category. Always handcrafted, ‘Cherry Stout’, a more fruit and oak forward dark brown beer, is brewed for the adventurous soul looking for something a bit different than the traditional black stout. But remember, this brew is a limited release and there are no promises to ever brew this style again, so enjoy it while it lasts!
Due to popular demand New Glarus Brewing Company brought back Dan’s Gold Medal winning “Unplugged Cherry Stout.” This ale is aged in Oak barrels to promote the spontaneous fermentation. Eight Wisconsin malted barleys combined with Wisconsin Montmorency Cherries make for a complex and sublime taste experience that you may never find again.
