Brewery- Christian Moerlein
Strength, Distinction, Ingenuity, Pride. These are words that describe the innovative Machine Age of our nation’s history. They describe the men and women who made today possible; but perhaps most importantly, they describe Christian Moerlein Handlebar Double Stout, a strong and distinct stout that boasts an ingenious blend of dark roasted malts and a balancing blend of hops. Handlebar is a celebration of these four things. You are about to become part of what made today possible: Be Strong. Be Distinct. Be Ingenious. Be Proud.
Part of their limited release can series, Handlebar is a “double stout” through and through. This beer is full of roasty and chocolate flavors topped off by a hop bitterness that brings to mind a bittersweet chocolate. This will catch up to you pretty quickly with it’s robust alcohol content, though the very same will do well to warm you up on a cool winter evening, as well.
Christian Moerlein is really bringing their skills to a new level with some of the beers (this included) in their new limited release series, for a brewery that was known for so long for their traditional German-Style beers, it’s surprising and very welcome to see!
