Who doesn’t love a huge, rich, roasty, jet-black stout in the heat of summer? Weirdos, that’s who. Okay, so maybe we’re in the minority, but as far as we’re concerned, imperial stouts are never out of season. But the real reason we started brewing Dead Goon in July/August is so that we could age a portion in bourbon barrels, for release in February or March. The beer that emerges from those barrels is called Undead Goon, of course. This year’s Undead Goon has aged for a full year and is slated for a bottle release in October.
Contrary to what everyone seems to think, the name has nothing to do with hockey thugs. Rather, it is taken from the title of the final track on Mr. Bungle’s self-titled first major release. Look that one up…
