Today’s beer is the Imperial Stout out of the Olde Hickory Brewery in Hickory. The folks at Olde Hickory say “Great beer is the result of meticulous attention to detail throughout the brewing process. Our beers begin their life as fresh water that flows from the granite slopes of the Blue Ridge and culminate in small batches less than 800 gallons each.” They say the
Imperial Stout is “Blacker than night, stouter than stout” and “brewed with a lot of malt & a touch of honey, Imperial Stout is rich & robust with deep, deep notes of dark chocolate & espresso.” It was the winner of a Silver Medal at the 2011 LA International Commercial Beer Competition and of a World Beer Cup 2012 bronze award in the American-Style Imperial Stout Category.
