AN IN-DEPTH LOOK AT THIS YEAR'S SILK CITY VARIANTS!

Updated: Apr 19


Our biggest release of the year and an annual tradition dating back to the early days of Brix, Silk City Day continues to be a benchmark for what we stand for as a brewery: sharing good beer with good folks!


We continue that tradition this Saturday (4/20) by releasing FIVE unique variants of our Silk City stout. Silk City is a rich and luscious Imperial Stout typically aged in hand-selected, freshly emptied, barrels from A. Smith Bowman Distillery. The 2024 vintage features a selection of Silk City stouts all aged 6 months in Bourbon Barrels. This year sees the return of our base variant along with four new ice cream-themed variants. See below for more details.


Silk City (2024) Bourbon Barrel-Aged // 10.5% abv // Our rich, luscious, Imperial Stout base aged 6 months in hand-selected, freshly emptied, Bourbon Barrels from A. Smith Bowman Distillery. The 2024 vintage opens up with aromas of dark chocolate, burnt brown sugar and vanilla with hints of smoke. On tasting, we're finding notes reminiscent of dark and milk chocolates swirled together and sweet caramel with a roasted, lightly bitter, finish.


Silk City (2024) BBA Tiramisu // 10.5% abv // Inspired by a favorite Italian dessert turned ice cream flavor.
