London, Ontario – Forked River Brewing have announced the return of Weendigo. This 10%ABV bourbon barrel-aged imperial stout is available now at the LCBO and at the brewery in 500ml bottles.
This winter seasonal release, Weendigo has the distinction of having earned gold at the 2015 Canadian Brewing Awards. Weendigo starts off as a full-flavoured, almost chocolately beer that is then lovingly placed in Wild Turkey bourbon barrels for upwards of 6 months. The oak and sweet bourbon flavours mix brilliantly with the imperial stout, yielding an over 10% ABV winter warmer. The beer is then bottled and hand-dipped in sealing wax, enhancing the legendary look and making an impressive holiday gift. Watch out for Weendigo, the wild and mythical beast that will frighten off the timid drinkers, but not the seasoned craft beer enthusiasts.
