Breakside Oligarch Tasting and Pastry Flights

We will be showcasing 4 Variants of Breakside Brewery 's Oligarch BA Russian Imperial Stouts. There will be a flight special that includes pastries to pair with each Variant.

The Oligarch
Imperial Stout Aged in Bourbon Barrels
Here is a beer over two-years in the making. What initially began as a single batch of British Imperial Stout, evolved into a blend of our favorite barrels from four different batches of Stouts aged in barrels. This beer is rich, sticky, sweet and aggressive and is best shared with friends who tend toward excess, indulgence, and pleasure. As a tip of the hat to the other barrel-aged imperial stouts that have inspired us, we name this beer after the contemporary equivalent of Russian royalty: the Oligarch. Unlike a modern-day oligarch; though, you don't have to be a petty tyrant to enjoy this beer.

Maple Oligarch
Imperial Stout Aged in Maple Bourbon Barrels
Now here is something special - The Oligarch, our imperial stout aged in Bourbon barrels, which has been aged for over two years in barrels that held both Bourbon and then maple syrup from Bissell Maple Farm in Jefferson, Ohio. Enjoy the wonderful sweetness that the maple imparts into this intense and rich beer!

Bocconotto
Imperial Stout Aged in Bourbon Barrels with Chocolate, Cinnamon, Almonds, and Lemon Zest
This variant of The Oligarch 2019 is comprised of 8 of the most intense barrels to come from this series. Aged on cinnamon bark, toasted almonds, chocolate and a touch of lemon zest, this beer is an ode to on of our favorite cookies, a specialty of the southern Italy.

Piedmontese
Imperial Stout Aged in Maple Bourbon Barrels with Hazelnut, Vanilla, and Sea Salt
This variant of The Oligarch 2019 is comprised of 7 of the most elegant casks to come from this entire series. Inspired by the off-sweet cakes of northern Italy, we conditioned this blend of maple barrel-aged stouts on Oregon-grown hazelnuts and vanilla bean and added a touch of sea salt for depth. This is pastry stout gone fancy!
