Being the greedy bugger I am, one of the first questions I asked when Avery first arrived was, “Awesome, but are we getting the specialty and seasonal beers too?” Sadly, at the time the answer was, “We don’t have them yet.” Well, things are finally looking up as Paul from the Wine and Cheese Place just informed me that Avery’s Imperial IPA Maharaja is now available in St. Louis. Here’s the description from Avery’s website:
Maharaja is derived from the sanskrit words mahat, – “great” and rajan – “king”. Much like its namesake, this imperial IPA is regal, intense and mighty. With hops and malts as his servants, he rules both with a heavy hand. The Maharaja flaunts his authority over a deranged amount of hops: tangy, vibrant and pungent along with an insane amount of malted barley – fashioning a dark amber hue and exquisite malt essence.
This newest Avery Dictator completes the “Dictator Series” joining the likes of The Kaiser & The Czar. Be aware that The Maharaja is a limited release only available for the summer. Welcome to his kingdom!
I’ve also been informed that we’ve only received 15 cases so far. But there is no guarentee that more is on the way. The easiest way to make that happen is to buy some as soon as possible. Show Avery we love their product, that way we’re more likely to keep getting these limited releases.
