Special Victory Brewing Co. release… Dark Intrigue.

 This Wednesday, November 24, 2010, Victory Brewing Co. will be releasing a Limited Release beer in the Philadelphia area.

 Dark Intrigue is it’s name and it will be a Kentucky Bourbon Barrel aged evolution of their already excellent Storm King Stout.

Aged in Bourbon Barrels for 6 months, Dark Intrigue will be offered in 750ml corked and caged bottles.

 At the moment, there are few details on the logistics of the release.  I was able to obtain a bit of information from a rep at Victory who noted everything was subject to change… obviously.

As of today (Tuesday), there will be a 1 case limit on purchases.  The current price is listed as $120 for a case, or around $15 per bottle.  There will be no option for pre-purchase or reservations.  Quantities will be first come-first served and I was told they had a smaller production than expected.  Current numbers look like 70 cases?!?!  Yikes!

Ok, so let’s do the math… 70 cases.   That’s 840 bottles.  Well, I’m sure some folks will by a few singles, but I bet those cases are going to get sold pretty darn fast.  That’s too bad.

 One item of note, was that it may only be available in only 2 markets.  This is interesting, because a Facebook post a few weeks ago listed more than 2 markets.  That does go with the smaller production information.  We’ll just have to see.

 I, for one, am really looking forward to this release for a couple of reasons.  First, it’s Victory, and Storm King Stout is a great starting point for a Bourbon Barrel aged beer.

 And second, it’s the first Special Release to which I will have direct access.  Always exciting!  Unfortunately, I have to work a full day on Wednesday.  It’s probably unlikely that any will be left by 4pm.

Curses… foiled again!
