The tasting will include the new Black Note Bourbon Barrel Aged Stout, a blend of Expedition Stout and Double Cream Stout that’s aged in oak bourbon barrels. Only 25 places in Ohio received the beer, said Jon Albrecht, beer buyer for the Akron-based grocery chain.
Acme, which has a limited supply, will pour a flight of two-ounce samples of Expedition Stout, Double Cream Stout and Black Note for $5. Smitten Golden Rye Ale, Two Hearted Ale and Pale Ale also will be available.
People will be able to purchase growlers of the Bell’s beers, but not the Black Note because it’s only available in bottles.
