It’s Force Friday II, and the Empire has invaded the window sill. Can Yoda save us from the Stout Trooper?

New England Brewing Company is very near and dear to my heart. I recently visited it, so check out the link in my profile to read more about them. Great place. Great beers. CT breweries getting it done.

Force Friday is basically just a Star Wars merchandising day. Today, you’ll be able to buy all the coolest Star Wars toys. I don’t know about you, but I have my eyes on that Lego Ultimate Collector Series Millennium Falcon.

The FORCE is definitely strong with this Russian Imperial Stout. Not only is it 9.5% ABV, it’s so freaking good! I can taste some chocolate and coffee, but what I really love is the velvety and creamy way it goes down. Despite being a pretty hefty stout, it’s super drinkable and smooth. Even Yoda would let you join the dark side for this brew.
