Mother Earth Celebrates Autumn with New Barrel-Aged Release

After a brief hiatus to make room for the release of a collaborative “Summer” IPA, 4S returns to its roots with a Bourbon Barrel-aged Maple & Pecan Ale.

At 11.5%, the big & boozy Imperial Stout highlights two popular fall-time ingredients, and is one of the best in the series, according to Director of Brewing Operations, Chris Baker: “This was an opportunity to have fun with maple, a flavor that has few applications outside of dessert-like beers. Notes of chocolate and coffee malts also create a rich environment that meld perfectly with sweet maple and nutty, earthy pecan. The mouthfeel is thick and luscious, and the aroma is like dessert-in-a-glass without being over-the-top. Brown sugar is added late-boil to create a distinct brûléed finish that’s just perfect for the changing of the season.”

As is customary for the series, 4S Autumn ’22 drops on or around the Autumn equinox, rolling out to Mother Earth’s distributors over the coming weeks.

Get it at the brewery’s Idaho tasting rooms first this Friday 9/23 when they release it on draft and in 16oz cans. Not in Idaho? No problem. Mother Earth’s Beer Finder will be updated as it continues to roll out at
