It wasn’t so long ago that I cringed every time I heard of a craft brewery being bought out by a large investment group. When I heard that Cigar City was being purchased by Fireman Capital Partners, who also owns majority stakes in Oskar Blues, Perrin Brewing and the Utah Brewers Cooperative outfit that includes the Wasatch and Squatters brands, I just knew that the apocalypse was upon us. However, over time, I came to understand and appreciate the benefits of this conglomeration.
From brewery collaborations to the improved availability of craft beer in states where distribution lacked, having phenomenal breweries under the same umbrella is a win-win. And now, with Perrin brewing’s release of Black Goat Double Black Lager, I’m even happier and thankful for the partnership.
Press Release from Perrin Brewing
Comstock Park, Mich. – Kickin’ its way out of fresh bourbon barrels, Perrin Brewing is ready to release, “Black Goat” the third specialty bottle release of 2017 on May 15 from the Perrin Pub.
This high gravity double black lager was laid down and aged for several months before coming to life. A bold, sweet vanilla bean aroma rises from the nose which is followed closely by flavors of complex dark chocolate and ripened stone fruit. This lively lager finishes with a unique charred oak character and a smooth, warm caramel bourbon flavor that will exceed all taste bud expectations.
Perrin will be offering “Black Goat” on draft starting May 12 and 22oz. bottles on May 15 for $10.99 per bottle and market distribution in Michigan, Colorado, Indiana, Ohio, Florida, and New York City following release date.
