“Ahhh… Parabola.

Brewmaster Matt Brynildson’s opening words should tell us all we need to know about this absolute beast of a beer. Only thing is, this is Beer Talk, and there’s so much more to talk about when we’re highlighting the cornerstone of our barrel-aging program.

Today we’ve set the spotlight on to the 16th edition of our favorite Russian Imperial Stout. What makes it a Russian Imperial Stout? Well, it’s big and strong and a little intense at first. But don’t let first impressions scare you off, because once you pour some Parabola into your favorite snifter you’ll know you have something approachable and delicious in your hands.

Each annual Parabola release bears its own subtle imprint. And with intense flavors of black cherry, dark chocolate, vanilla, and roast coffee, the 2024 update is no different. From stainless steel tanks to Elijah Craig barrels to one of the finest-looking bottles that could ever grace your fridge’s top shelf, every sip of Parabola follows quite the journey.

So, get a glass, sit back, and hit play to hear our Brewmaster talk all about it here in this episode of Beer Talk: Parabola.
