Beer and bourbon: two great tastes that taste great together, or so the saying goes. When Bristol aged their annual Winter Warlock oatmeal stout in Axe and the Oak barrels for two months, well, the results were pretty magical. To celebrate this blend of local flavors, Bristol held a big release party last Thursday, February 4th. If you missed it, don't worry — the beer is on sale in 22 oz. bombers around town — Cheers is selling them for $9.49 each.
