291st Daily Growler of 2013

Thirsty Dog Wulver Barrel Aged Wee Heavy $22/growler (limit 1 per customer)

This beer is not for the faint of heart. Wulver — the name is a nod to the legend of a Scottish werewolf — clocks in at 12 percent alcohol by volume.

“I wanted a big beer to complement the bourbon flavors,” co-owner John Najeway said. “I’ve had some beers that are light that I didn’t think were appropriate with the bourbon barrel aging. I like a big, hardy beer that can capture that aroma and flavor and these beers do that.”
