Building on a strong relationship that was forged from their highly effective Bulleit & Montauk Beer on-premises campaign, Montauk Brewing Company and Bulleit Bourbon announced on Sept. 22 their latest collaboration, Montauk Imperial Pumpkin Ale—a very special and super-limited Ocean Series can release.
Montauk Brewing Co. is debuting the new fall beer during a special event at their Montauk tasting room (62 South Erie Avenue)—the only place it will be sold—on Thursday, September 30 at noon.
According to the creators, Montauk Imperial Pumpkin Ale is a “revved-up” version of their highly popular Montauk Pumpkin Ale and was brewed using 10-year Bulleit Bourbon barrels to enhance the flavor. The new beer checks in at 8% ABV (most beers are closer to 5% ABV).
Montauk brewer Stevie Czelatka says drinking Montauk Imperial Pumpkin Ale will bring “complex notes of molasses, oak and spices that are balanced out by a higher alcohol content.” And it won’t be the last beer he makes with Bulleit.
The two companies are exploring more creative ways to partner on more limited-time-offer (LTO) can releases for the future. Visitors at Thursday’s event will get to see the Bulleit Woody and grab a four-pack of 16 oz Montauk Imperial Pumpkin Ale cans, available exclusively at Montauk Brewing Company while supplies last.
