Going forward, the entire Vintage Reserve line of barrel aged beers will be bottled in the 12-ounce format so all those bombers you’ve been cellaring are now even more collectable.

Back In Black (Hood River, OR) – Full Sail Brewing recently released a hybrid variation of the year-round lager from their popular Session Black Series. Full Sail Session Black Cherry Black is a silky smooth 5.4% ABV black lager with a dash of dark cherry flavor added to keep things interesting.
Bet On Black (St Louis, MO) -Schlafly Beer has just shipped the first from their new Hop Allocation Series and they’re betting on black this time around. Dark as a stout but very much an India Pale Ale, Schlafly Black IPA is as crisp and hoppy as a late winter night breeze and just as refreshing.
