Deschutes has been building the hype on Facebook and Twitter with post after post after post about The Stoic, a Belgian Quad coming out of their barrel program. This beer weighs in at hearty 11% ABV. It was brewed with pomegranate molasses and was aged in rye whiskey and Pinot barrels. Like the Reserve Series predecessors that came before it, this of course must culminate with a pub release, and this happens today, August 16th, at the pubs in Bend and Portland.
Check out the sweet pics of the wax dipping on their Facebook posting announcing the release.
