True North Ale Launches OPIR Ukrainian Strong Stout In Support of Ukraine

True North Ale Company has released OPIR Ukrainian Strong Stout to raise funds in support of the people of Ukraine. Originally brewed in the classic style of a Russian Imperial Stout, that reference was abandoned last February. The word “opir” means “resistance” in the Ukrainian language. We stand with all Ukrainians in their resistance to oppression.

OPIR Ukrainian Strong Stout was aged for months in maple syrup bourbon barrels. Upfront bourbon spirit is followed by notes of black cherry, walnut, and cocoa nibs. The finish is sweet vanilla and maple syrup. At 10.5% ABV, OPIR is a big beer, meant for thoughtful sipping.

OPIR is available exclusively at the True North Ales Taproom, on tap and to-go in 375 ml Belgian-style bottles. A portion of the proceeds of each sale will go to World Central Kitchen to support its good work in feeding those affected by the war in Ukraine.
