Half Acre's Holiday Big Hugs

2009_12_bighugs.jpg Just in time for that drunk in your life who's picky about beer, Half Acre Beer Company is releasing a monster Imperial stout called Big Hugs. We'll let Half Acre's Gabriel Magliaro explain:

"This will be a 9.5% thug of a stout that boasts a ton of raw flavors that you can experience for yourself. We’re just about to crash the first batch, so you can expect to see this beer on tap and in 22oz bombers at select establishments around town and at our brewery store."

Well we're sold. Magliaro will also be tasting out Big Hugs and other Half Acre selections at West Lakeview Liquors this evening starting at 6 p.m.
