The Queen makes her royal debut.
Long live The Queen.
Formerly known as Whiskey Queen, this whiskey barrel-aged Imperial Stout is now known simply as The Queen. Same beer, new name (and, in fact, same beer as Rum King—just a different barrel). At 10.5% ABV, The Queen starts her journey to the throne as a pitch-black Imperial Stout, aged over seven months in American whiskey barrels to develop complex vanilla, chocolate and coconut aromas and a signature boozy finish. Warm, yet authoritative, The Queen boasts an unforgettable silky mouthfeel backed by roasted malt and oak flavors. An iron fist in a velvet glove, she rules.
We’re commemorating the occasion in royal fashion.
- In cans: This is the first time we’re packaging The Queen for distribution; available in a liquor store near you. We've done the aging for you, so don't let her sit idle in the fridge.
- On tap: On tap now in bars/restaurants and in the Minneapolis taproom Thursday, Feb. 27
- Flight Night: We’re infusing The Queen with four flavor combinations on Thursday, Feb. 27: Dogwood NEON Espresso and Vanilla Bean; Cacao Nibs and Orange Zest; Cherry and Coconut; and Ginger and Lemon Zest. RSVP on Facebook.
- Royal Crush: To properly commemorate the occasion, we’re having a bottle release party on Saturday, Feb. 29. Beginning at 12pm, there will be 300 bottles available of The Queen Brewer’s Reserve ($30 a bottle, limit of two). Among the festivities to honor The Queen is a chess tournament; RSVP to the event on Facebook and sign up for the tournament here.
Get cozy in our taproom and grab a flight of our classic imperial stout base alongside three coffee-infused beers including hand-crushed Bear Hug beans, Zamboni Cold Press, and Neon Espresso all brewed by Dogwood Coffee. Kegs will be tapped at 3pm on Thursday, September 26th, and only available while supplies last.
The art of barrel-aging beer has been around for over 2000 years, but only in recent times has this delicate science been brought back to life and given its own flair here in the American craft beer scene. Brewers have been aging everything from pilsners to stouts in a variety of barrels that once held spirits like rum, whiskey, tequila, wine, gin, and Fernet. At Indeed Brewing, many of our barrel-aged concoctions are aged in rum, whiskey, or bourbon barrels for 10 months or more, most notably Rum King and Whiskey Queen Imperial Stouts.
