FORT BRAGG, Calif., March 28, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- North Coast Brewing Company (NCBC) announces an exceptional new barrel-aged beer. Born from a special collaboration between North Coast Brewing Company and Westward Whiskey, this limited offering of Barrel Aged Old Rasputin has matured for over a year in Westward Whiskey's single malt whiskey barrels and is now ready to be savored by discerning palates.

In April 2022, an exciting idea to collaborate on a new barrel-aged beer was realized. Single malt barrels were shipped from Portland, OR to Fort Bragg, CA, and filled with Old Rasputin. Now, NCBC is pleased to release this extraordinary offering: Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout aged to perfection in Westward Whiskey Single Malt barrels.

The partnership with Westward Whiskey combines the bold character of Old Rasputin with the nuances of Westward Stout Cask Whiskey Barrels.

"This collaboration is a testament to the exceptional artistry and craftsmanship embodied by both NCBC and Westward Whiskey," remarked Jennifer Owen, CEO of NCBC. "Our Brewmaster describes the beer as featuring robust whiskey notes complemented by hints of vanilla and dark chocolate aromas."

Thomas Mooney, CEO of Westward Whiskey, added, "We are thrilled to partner with North Coast on this exciting and limited offering. We share so many similarities with this iconic beer producer – our passion for the brewing process and love for stout beers, our commitment to innovation, and our love for bold and robust flavor –  and we believe this symbiotic approach shines through in this Old Rasputin release."
