Old dog Schlafly is learning new tricks with its From the Ibex Cellar series. With a nod to what beer nerds are after these days, Ibex offers all barrel-aged beers, which expand the brewery’s purview to include new projects like intensely fruited sours, a gose and foeder-aged beers.

Ibex beers have been difficult to find with small releases in large-format bottles, until now. With the purchase of a new bottling line, Schlafly will be offering more extensive Ibex releases in four-packs of 11.2-ounce bottles sporting that signature rampant goat.

The first to be bottled in this new format its Schlafly’s popular barrel-aged Imperial stout. The rich, chocolaty stout is aged in bourbon barrels for even more intensity. Its bold, strong flavor is surprisingly smooth with just a hint of sweetness. I found the crowd-pleasing beer to bring to my family’s holiday dinner. You can pick up your own four-pack for $18 at the Schlafly Tap Room and Bottleworks.
