Auriga, 6.5% 44IBU American Stout, is the perfect cool weather beer!

Auriga is the 4th installment in the Northern Hemisphere Constillation Brewers’ Select Series. Auriga is a American Stout: slightly roasty with a dry finish. Good hop flavor, thanks to plenty of Delta hops (a Cascade / Fuggles hybrid) in the kettle and whirlpool. Vienna forms the entire base malt with lots of Caramunich, roasted barley and chocolate malt for flavor and color and the mouthfeel and head retention are compliments of oats and wheat. 6.5% ABV, 44 IBU. Fantastic cool weather beer.

As with all of our Brewers’ Select beers, Auriga will have extremely limited production. Auriga will be available on draft at select restaurants and bars throughout our distribution area.

12 oz bottles and filled-from-the-tap fresh growlers will be available exclusively at Weyerbacher’s Visitors Center starting Friday, November 22nd, 2013.

    Both brewers select beers I tasted this weekend were fantastic, and I was sad to learn they are limited run. Is there any way find out how long that run will last or when the next in the series is out?

      Not sure if you had Bootes yet but at the Visitors Center we have both Bootes and Auriga in stock and we have just a tiny bit of Aries left on draft right now! Watch the post ‘What’s On Tap’ or something to that effect always stuck to the top of our homepage for the up-to the minute beer availability. We update it each time something is added or sold-out. Cheers!

      Hi Edd! We’re sold out and no, it did not go to distributors – only a limited amount of kegs went out to bars / restaurants. Sorry!
