Enter the Vortex: Pisgah Brewing Vortex II

get more from BRO

Enter the Vortex. Love the Vortex.

The Christmas season just keeps getting better. First, you had the release of Cold Mountain Winter Ale, a ridiculously popular holiday beer from Highland Brewing that flies off the shelves faster than the Elf on the Shelf heading to the North Pole. Now, we get to look forward to Pisgah Brewing releasing its annual winter brew, Vortex. The annual Pisgah Brewing Vortex is typically a dark, rich, high gravity beer. This year, they’re releasing Pisgah Brewing Vortex II Russian Imperial Stout. And they’ve collaborated with French Broad Chocolate Factory to add crazy delicious cocoa nibs.

Mmmm…nibs.

Half of the Pisgah Brewing Vortex II batch will get the nibs, the other half will be released “naked.” Both will be released in an annoyingly limited amounts of 22 ounce bottles. The release party is set for Dec. 20. Hit the brewery directly, or be prepared to hunt stores around Asheville for the beautiful “deuce deuce” bottles from Pisgah.
