OL’ RUGGER RUSSIAN IMPERIAL STOUT 

Ol’ Rugger, our signature Bourbon Barrel Aged Russian Imperial stout, is a nod to our friend Lynn Harvey and the great sport of rugby. Big and bold with notes of tobacco, molasses, dark fruit, vanilla, and chocolate make this a beer that exemplifies a Rugger and Zaftig Brewing Co. As they say, “Never let good enough BE enough!” 

Variants for this year include:

  • Classic 

  • Coffee 

  • Cherry & Vanilla 

  • Orange & Vanilla 

  • Double Barrel
