The Big Two
Imperial English Ale
Brewed for our anniversary, this is an imperial version of One so it’s bigger, stronger, and more complex– just like Optimism’s second year. Big, yet balanced with burnt caramel, toasted coffee and molasses.
Story Behind the Name
Our first year's anniversary beer was The Big One. For our second anniversary, we made the Big Two, even bigger than the first.
This is a style we completely made up. There is no such thing as an Imperial Extra Special Bitter. ESB is as high as it goes, so this is basically at 11.
