Imperial stout fans and whale hunters alike, prepare yourselves for the release of the Reserve 15 from Saint Arnold Brewing Company this coming Monday June 15th, with a special tapping at the Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton starting at 7pm.
“Tapping of the only Divine Reserve 15 Keg in our territory,” The Pig shared. “Plus Saint Arnold specials!”

According to the brewery, this beer is based upon a winning homebrew recipe. “This Divine Reserve was inspired by the winning entry of the 2007 Big Batch Brew Bash homebrew competition, brewed by Mike Heniff, a highly decorated local Houston homebrewer. Russian Imperial Stouts are very big and very black and this one is no exception.”
“It was first brewed as DR5. DR15 has a rich malty body full of coffee and chocolate flavors and a spiciness derived from the combination hops and high alcohol. It was brewed with a variety of malts including 2 row pale, crystal, chocolate and roasted barley. It was hopped with Nugget, Willamette and Centennial. We used our Saint Arnold yeast to ferment it. It is unfiltered.
Enjoy at 45°F or warmer with some dark chocolate or a bowl of vanilla ice cream.”
