5 Paddles announces pair of Valentines Day themed stouts
Whitby, ON – 5 Paddles Brewing Co. this week announced two upcoming releases – both stouts – geared towards Valentines Day.
Up first – The Mistress: Bourbon Barrel Aged Russian Imperial Stout – is bottle-conditioned and measures at 10% ABV. The Mistress, “balances beautifully the roasty, bittersweetness of a Russian Imperial Stout with the boozy charred vanilla barrel character from the Bourbon Barrel,” says 5 Paddles. It launches Saturday, February 8 at 11am in 650mL bottles with only 240 available.
Next up – The Chocolate Covered Strawberry – a 6.5% ABV English-style Export Stout brewed with cacao beans and then fermented with strawberries locally sourced in Durham Region and more cocao beans. It launches in 650mL bottles on Valentines Day, Friday February 14.
Both beers are sold through 5 Paddles’ brewery retail store.
