Blueberry Coffee Waypost (2023)
Bourbon Barrel-Aged Imperial Anniversary Milk Stout with Coffee & Blueberries
2023 Waypost Imperial Anniversary Milk Stout aged in Buffalo Trace Bourbon Barrels, finished with:
- 5 Pounds of Ethiopia Worka Sakaro Coffee Beans from Ironclad Coffee Roasters
- 20 Pounds of Dried Blueberries
~Noun. Waypost (plural wayposts): A sign or other marker that indicates the way along a road or trail.
…and fittingly, it marks another year for our journey here at 401 Second Street. Waypost is an annual anniversary release, ever maturing in select spirits barrels throughout the year to help us commemorate the brewery’s anniversary on March 26th.
This year’s base Waypost recipe is a rich & luscious Imperial Milk Stout. Blueberry Coffee Waypost takes a base of this year’s Waypost Neat (aged in Buffalo Trace Bourbon Barrels) and adds freshly roasted coffee from our friends at Ironclad Coffee Roasters in Richmond, VA. Then finished with Dried Blueberries, the result is astoundingly aromatic with a complex sweet and roasty finish.
A boozy breakfast beer, perfect for a kickstart to Year 8 and beyond!
