Christmas in October

Hardywood will soon take orders for the 2018 Gingerbread Stout complete set.

It’s about that time again. For years devotees have come out in droves, lining up at Hardywood Park Craft Brewery and scouring local market shelves for the coveted and limited Gingerbread Stout. “Beer Advocate” magazine gave it a perfect score of 100 after its initial release in 2011. The imperial milk stout comes in at 9.2 percent alcohol, and with its notes of milk chocolate, vanilla, honeycomb, ginger and cinnamon, it tastes like the holidays in a bottle. The brewers at Hardywood have since developed spin-offs, like the Christmas Morning, which adds the flavors of coffee beans from Black Hand Coffee Co. to the stout. Then there’s the Kentucky Christmas Morning, which brings both coffee and bourbon into the mix.

This year the beer is available in 11 varieties, including brandy barrel-aged, rye barrel-aged and port-barrel aged. And you might be able to get your hands on 11 Gingerbread Stouts, plus a limited edition glass, together in a set. Family Tree Beer Club members, who have access to exclusive beers and deals, plus merchandise and pre-release options, get first dibs, and at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 24, however many $175 sets are left will become available to the public.

There’s a one-per-person limit, and pickup begins Friday, Dec. 14.

Snag yours here.
