MCS is Culmination Brewing’s bourbon barrel-aged Imperial Stout that was formerly supposed to be released black friday, but will hit cans at the brewery today. MCS is the beer formerly known as Multnomah County Stout, the name a winking nod to that formerly independent Chicago-based brewery that shall not be named. Culmination still calls the beer Multnomah County Stout but the cans are emblazoned with a bold red font saying MCS – and we are assured it’s only for brevity.
“The name is definitely a play on Bourbon County Stout but is not inspired by the recipe itself, just a wink, a nod, and soft jab towards a very well established brand,” says Culmination’s Paul Francis, who hasn’t drank a BCS since that brewery’s buy-out.
As we count down the 24 days of December leading up to Christmas, we are highlighting one barrel-aged beer each day. View all of the beers on this year’s Barrel-Aged Beer advent calendar after they have been posted at https://www.newschoolbeer.com/category/ba-adventcalendar
