2013 Pugachev's Cobra in 750ml bottles - $20 (limit 6) and on Draught
Pugachev Royale only in 11.2 oz bottles - Price TBA (limit 1)

Pugachev’s Cobra begins as an intense Russian Imperial Stout brewed with three dark, roasted malts and maple syrup. This complex base is then aged for eight months in freshly emptied bourbon barrels. This powerful concoction can be enjoyed fresh on draught or from the bottle, but is also designed to continue to develop in the cellar to be savored in the years to come. Each 750ml corked, hand-numbered bottle will be $20 in the Brewery Tasting Room, with a maximum of six per person. In previous years Pugachev’s Cobra bottles sold out in the Tasting Room on release day, after that point they could only be found at select craft-centric stores and bars throughout California.

Pugachev Royale is a more developed version of Cobra. We added cacao nibs and vanilla beans to a select few barrels of Pugachev’s Cobra during its eight months in Bourbon Barrels, then transferred it to brandy barrels for an additional 10 months of aging. Royale displays sweet, ripe fruit notes doused with incredible chocolate aromatics. This is a truly decadent beer to be saved for a special occasion, and will evolve in the cellar for years to come. Approximately 400 hand-numbered 11.2 oz bottles will be available in the Tasting Room only. Purchases of Royale will be limited to one per guest.
