GSN Review: Shiner x Garrison Brothers Limited-edition 24 oz. Barrel-Aged Doppelbock

The independent, family-owned makers of iconic Shiner Bock announce a new 24 oz. Barrel-Aged Doppelbock made in collaboration with Garrison Brothers Distillery, a renowned Texas-based distillery known for Texas Straight Bourbon. The Barrel-Aged Doppelbock is the first of five in the Brewer’s Pride 2022 series, a line of exclusive brews crafted by Shiner Brewmasters to honor their most devoted fans.

Barrel-Aged Doppelbock is crafted with Two-Row Premium, Copper and Chocolate Malts, as well as Golding Hops, then aged in ex-Port casks that were used to create Garrison Brothers’ Guadalupe Bourbon. The combination of unique flavors and slow aging in the one-of-a-kind casks results in innovative flavors that will appeal to connoisseurs.

As the first release in the launch of the Brewers Pride line, the Barrel-Aged Doppelbock (12% ABV) is expected to sell out quickly. Available for purchase at major Shiner retailers in Texas including HEB, Kroger and Total Wine.

GSN’s Remarks: A strong, nearly imperial style beer with a lot of flavor and character. Doppelbocks happen to be one of my favorite styles, and this one does not disappoint. A rich, velvety and very tight carbonation diffuses the intense sweet and boozy lager. Loads of malt are offset by the intriguing blend of Port and Bourbon barrel aging, creating a lot of high notes that tease the palate with sharpness. A beautiful expression of the inherent skills of Shiner’s brewmasters. Grab a few bottles to cellar if you have the opportunity. GSN Rating: A+
