Stubborn imperial stout launches for 2022
Winter has come. Embrace the darkness.
Bright Brewery’s infamous Stubborn Imperial Stout has landed for 2022.
A dark and decadent beer, tipping the scales at a hearty 11.5% ABV, Stubborn has layers of sweet chocolate and dark espresso.
The 2022 vintage of this iconic beer has an intense roasty aroma and a subtle smoke not seen in previous years.
And Stubborn lovers might notice something else a little different about this year’s brew.
“In light of the horrific Russian war on Ukraine, we have decided to drop the Russian name and branding from our beloved beer,” Bright’s marketing manager, Laura Gray, said.
Brewed continuously for the past 12 years, Stubborn has become a firm favourite amongst dark beer lovers around Australia.
“It’s probably our best-known beer, and a true cult favourite,” Gray said.
Gray said the iconic beer was named for its stubbornness during fermentation.
“Every single year, something strange happens during this brew,” Gray explained. “Our head brewer thinks it must be cursed!”
Stubborn Imperial Stout 2022 will be launched alongside Bright’s best-selling Affogato Stout to the general public from 5pm tonight (Fri, May 6) – both online and from Bright Brewery.
Both will be available from retail outlets across Australia from next week.
