Notes / Commercial Description:
Named of the original name of the city of Kennesaw (our home town), Big Shanty is not a little beer by any means. Made with real graham cracker crumbs and honey, itʼs sweetness is only challenged by itʼs strong roast and hop bitterness. A world class stout with an extreme amount of local flavor.

Overall the best stout in GA! (maybe the country) been drinking this non stop for a month at the brewery. more like a raisin oatmeal cookie than graham cracker but what the hell?

WOW. What a beer. A great stout. Smells like a cinnabon mixed with real graham cracker. I'm a huge fan of hardywood's ginger bread stout. this beer is right there!

This is truly a unique beer! It smells like cinnamon, immediately making you think you're about to drink a cookie. And when you taste it, the cinnamon blends perfectly with the graham cracker. It literally tastes like you're drinking a cookie.

This is an incredible brew! The smell of fresh graham crackers hits you immediately. The taste of graham cracker is predominant in this beer, but it blends very well with the other flavors and spices. This beer is a uniquely tasteful treat.

This beer is delicious. The graham crackers and honey notes aren't too sweet. This hometown brewery is doing it right.

What a fantastic beer! Dark & smooth - sweet and strong. The hints of graham and cinnamon add pleasant quality to the smell and taste of this wonderful beverage.

Outstanding flavored stout! The graham cracker taste is totally there, but not overwhelming. Nice balance of flavor and sweetness. Don't even taste the alcohol either (+huge plus+).

This is THE beer that got me hooked on Burnt Hickory! Absolutely amazing graham cracker stout. Very easy to drink and suprising that this is a 9abv brew.

Did not look as heavy as I expected during the pour. Smelled like an oatmeal raisin cookie and tasted like a graham cracker. Great beer.
