Triad Breweries Announce Release of Collaboration Brew

Black Lamb is a barrel aged
Moravian Cookie Russian Imperial Stout

"Greensboro, NC • Paying homage to the Moravians who were among the first settlers of the area, a group of Triad breweries have worked together to create a very special brew.   This Russian Imperial Stout was brewed with Moravian Cookie spices (primarily molasses and ginger). Then the batch was aged for eight months - half in red wine barrels, and half in bourbon barrels. The richness and complexity reflect the amazing diversity and growth of the brewing community in the Triad.

Collaborating breweries were Four Saints Brewing Co, Gibb’s Hundred Brewing Co, Haw River Farmhouse Ales, Hoots Beer Co, Liberty Brewery & Grill, Mystery Brewing Co, Preyer Brewing Co, and Skull Camp Brewing. Half of these breweries are a year old or less, highlighting the recent burst of energy and creativity in the Triad brewing scene. They were joined by breweries-in-planning XII Tribes Brewing and Wise Man Brewing.

Black Lamb will be released on November 20. In the Triad, it will only be available in the breweries’ taprooms. For more information on release parties, go to and search “Black Lamb”. Outside of the Triad, a Triad Tap Takeover Tour is being planned to introduce craft beer fans in Charlotte, the Triangle, and Asheville to Triad beer. The Charlotte event will be at Craft Tasting Room on November 24, the Triangle event will be at Raleigh Beer Garden on December 3, and the Asheville event will be at the Thirsty Monk in January (date TBD)."
