Bourbon barrel aged russian imperial stout
NIKITA [ni-kee-tuh, kroo-sh-chef] — 1894-1971, Premier of the Soviet Union from 1958-64, oversaw the creation of Sputnik 2.
To create Nikita, we aged Sputnik 2 in bourbon barrels for four months. Sputnik 2 was the second beer in our Sputnik Brewer's Series. It was a Rye Russian Imperial Stout brewed by our brewer, Brady Alden. It was a fairly traditional imperial stout brewed with roasted barley, midnight wheat, and 20% local rye, hopped with Magnum, Cascade, and Mount Hood.
