COOP TROAIS release highlights busy beer week

Now that it's really getting cold outside, what better time to partake in a boozy, smoky imperial stout, right? Or how about a delicious winter warmer? Well have no fear, because your local bars and brewers have your back.

COOP Ale Works is hosting a Territorial Reserve Oak Aged Imperial Stout release party from 4 to 8 p.m. tomorrow (12/8) at the brewery, 4745 Council Heights Road. From the COOP FB page:

"It has been over a year since we bottled the last Territorial Reserve Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout and we are excited to announce that it is being release again on December 8th.

The 2016 Imperial Stout is the first of the updated Territorial Reserve Barrel Aged Series to include the new bottle design by local artist, Matt Goad. The series pays tribute to the pioneering settler and features limited run, barrel aged beers that highlight the staple brewing grains in each offering. Our team continually scrutinizes and refines each vintage in a quest to perfect our vision for these styles.

This beer began with a wagon full of eight different grains and aged for 13 months in bourbon barrels before blending to create a spirit-forward experience. Savor accordingly... it's 13.5% ABV."

The beer will be offered for $8 for a 12-ounce pour, or $16 for a 12-ounce pour and a limited-edition glass. Bottles are $15 and cases will go for $156.00.

This looks like a fun night, and it'll benefit Infant Crisis Services, but for the life of me I can't figure out if there's a certain prescribed crawl route you're supposed to take. As best I can gather, participating venues are WXYZ/Aloft, Urban Johnnie, Anchor Down, Deep Deuce Grill, WSKY, Slaughter's Hall, The Wedge and Skinny Slim's. More info available here.
