Commercial descriptions:

Swamp Head Barrel-Aged 10-10-10

This barrel aged version of 10-10-10 naturally takes this explosive beer to a whole new level of excess. The barrels have held some of Kentucky’s finest bourbon for many years. Aging the 10-10-10 in these barrels imparts notes of bourbon, oak and vanilla to complement the rich malt character, and profusion of hop flavors. 10% ABV

Swamp-Head-Catherines-Resentment

Catherine II, the 18th century Empress of Russia is said to have been the inspiration behind the creation of the Imperial Russian Stout, an intensely flavored, robust dark ale with a noticeable alcohol presence. Legend has it that Catherine also had a voracious sexual appetite; she was known to have many lovers, but the story about the stallion was probably a myth. We’ve infused this round of our Imperial Russian Stout with a stiff does of coconut and habanero peppers, creating a smooth, spicy stout ale that even Catherine herself may have resented. 10% ABV

Swamp Head Brewery is located at 3140 SW 42 Way in Gainesville, FL.
