We are honored to join Weathered Souls Brewing and over 1,000 breweries from 20 countries by participating in the Black is Beautiful initiative because we believe equal rights are non-negotiable.

We’re proud to be brewing a special imperial stout at our Propagator R&D brewhouse in Venice, California that originates from the Black is Beautiful recipe created by Weathered Souls Brewing to support justice and equality.

Learn more about the Black is Beautiful initiative on the website.

With bold notes of molasses, espresso, vanilla and cocoa, this beer weighs in around 10% ABV.  Its rich and silky body is enhanced from partial Bourbon barrel aging – a classic Firestone spin on the communal recipe. Our version of this beer consists of Parabola aged in Woodford Reserve bourbon barrels (30%), Velvet Merkin aged in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels (15%), and an imperial stout brewed at our Propagator R&D brewhouse in Venice, California (55%).

If you pre-ordered your imperial stout, get ready, it’s shipping from our brewery this week. We still have limited quantities available in 16oz 4-packs for $19.99 at our three California brew stores starting Friday, July 24. Limit 2 per purchase. While supplies last.
