Freetail Brewing Co., 405 N. Loop 1604 W., will release its annual imperial stout, La Muerta, soon. The draft will appear on Día de los Muertos, Nov. 2, while the the bottle release (dubbed Día de La Muerta) will be Nov. 5.
The annual bottle release of La Muerta has become popular among beer lovers, as it attracts long lines wanting one of the limited 22-ounce bottles.
“We constantly receive questions about La Muerta’s return, and Día de La Muerta has become a much-anticipated celebration,” said Freetail founder and CEO Scott Metzger. “In just a few years it has transformed into an event where fans get here hours before we open and hang out on the patio making new friends. It’s a really fun atmosphere that we don’t see much in Texas, but is thankfully becoming more common.”
The Nov. 1 release of La Muerta will be draft only at the brewpub with no growler fills allowed, but the 22 oz. bottles will be available at 11:30 a.m. on the 5th. Bottles will be priced at $11 each with a three-bottle-per-person limit. Freetail will also tap a number of rare beers, including the 2010 La Muerta and the debut of Pickly RealTail.
“We have increased production each year, yet every year it has sold out faster than ever – both on draft and in bottles,” added Metzger. “This year’s edition is the largest bottling run we’ve ever undertaken, all hand bottled by our brewers who work tirelessly to make these kinds of events possible.”
