Style and ABV vary
Though similar to the Bishop’s Barrel series, the Divine Reserve series is a once-a-year release and is always a new recipe. The only thing you can count on for these brews is that they will be fairly big in alcohol.
Imperial stout, 10%
A yearly release from Saint Arnold that started out as their Divine Reserve #9 in 2009, it has become a staple and a favorite fall-released beer across the state. It is brewed with pumpkin, molasses, brown sugar, and spices and comes out around October 15th each year.
Responsible for first showing many a beer drinker the world beyond lights and lites, Shiner Bock is about as recognizable a brand in Texas as anything in the state, and probably the first beer many think of when they think “Texas beer.”
Imperial stout, 8.25%
Buried Hatchet drinks a little bit lighter than traditional imperial stouts, but still packs in a lot of flavor. Roasted malts, light hop bitterness, and big notes of chocolate and coffee are all mingling together in the best possible way.
