A barrage of stout releases culminate mid-February in a massive barrel aged bottle release at The Aftermath on 2/18. More beer, more Matryoshka variants and more additions than ever before.
THE AFTERMATH is Fort George’s largest bottle release of the year. In December they released Matryoshka 2024 – The Mother, a legendary 14% barrel aged imperial stout. Since that release the brewers at the Fort have been adding more and more adjuncts to the original mother stout, siphoning off increasingly smaller batches to condition on increasingly delicious additions. All of the resulting Matryoshka 2024 variants will be released the day after Festival of Dark Arts along with 4 other limited releases:
Full Pastry Send – an imperial stout collaboration with Moksa.
Fantastic Barrels and Where to Find Them – a 24 month barrel project blend.
The return of Crysknife – a hazy IPA collab with OMF in 16oz cans (to break up the darkness).
And a special blend of the best of the best hand selected imperial stout barrels from the last two years: 2024 Matryoshka Barrel Select.
Every weekend in February is a Carnival of Stout at Fort George. Any day this month you can taste your way up from a London Foginspired stout to a 24-month Westward Whiskey Cavatica Whiskey barrel aged version of Fort George’s beloved Cavatica Stout.
Visit Fort George during Stout Month and bathe your sun-starved skin in the radiance of this rotating carnival of stout.
