Zaftig Brewing Company will host their annual release of Ol’ Rugger Russian Imperial Stout this weekend.

At 17% ABV, Ol’ Rugger is one of the biggest beers that the brewery produces, and it’s a favorite among customers and critics — the 2018 release earned a gold medal at the U.S. Open Beer Championships.

Four variants of Ol’ Rugger will be available at Saturday’s bottle release: regular ($14 – limit 6), vanilla with cocoa nibs ($17), coconut with cocoa nibs ($17 – limit 4 total between the two cocoa variants), and double barrel aged ($24 – limit 2). Bottle sales start at noon and are first-come-first-served. All four versions of the beer will also be available on tap for the event.

The 2019 Ol’ Rugger bottle release will take place Saturday, April 27 starting at noon. Zaftig Brewing is located at 7020A Huntley Rd.
