Perennial Mint Chocolate Stouts Coming in March

Perennial-Web-Logo-ColorSt. Louis’ Perennial Artisan Ales is keeping things interesting, announcing their next pair of bottled releases for March. The Mint Chocolate Stout known as 17 will be unveiled in the taproom this month, along with a rye whiskey barrel-aged version debuting afterward.

Following the hysteria surrounding the Barrel-Aged Abraxas release (line-cutting, mules, someone claiming they bought 60 bottles when the limit was 6 per person), Perennial swiftly moved to the unannounced release model for Barrel-Aged Sump Coffee Stout in February. Promoted only by a quick tweet and Facebook post, the beer came and went with little controversy or fanfare, which looks to be the way Barrel-Aged 17 will go from their most recent newsletter:

“We’re not going to make a big deal about this release, and when it’s gone, it’s gone. No hard feelings, we just made a small quantity to go around.”

Commercial description of 17:

“17 is a decadent chocolate stout complimented with a smooth mint finish perfect for winter’s last hurrah. Clocking in at 10% alcohol by volume, it is sure to warm you inside and out.”

Perennial Artisan Ales is located at 8125 Michigan Ave in St Louis.
