Divine
Reserve No. 18 Coming Monday

Diving into darkness, you can gain insight
into your potential. Allow the absence of light, and truly find what it means to
have it. This approach was taken when designing Divine Reserve No.
18.

 

How can we push the limits of our brewhouse?
Our house Saint Arnold yeast? Ourselves? After many, many test brews of Imperial
Stouts, we found the processes needed to create a beer with massive amounts of
flavor and aromatic qualities.

 

For DR18, we used a grain bill that required
four times the amount of grain as Fancy Lawnmower, dosed in two additions
of Belgian candi syrup during fermentation to provide an adrenaline shot to the
yeast, and let the beer rest for three months before adding a small amount of
Madagascar vanilla beans as an added layer of complexity.

 

The beer pours a rich darkness – no light
passes through – topped with a mocha colored head. The aroma is filled with
molasses, vanilla, baker’s chocolate, and rich dark fruit from our house yeast.
The flavor profile starts with rich chocolate and raspberries that are dipped in
honey, then builds on dried dark cherry notes, and finishes with wine like
silkiness.

 

Please enjoy Divine Reserve No. 18 at 60°
and in the safety of your own home.

Beginning
Monday, February 19, you can find DR18 at stores in six packs and 22 oz. bomber
bottles, as well as on tap around town. Many places – like the ones below – will
hang on to kegs for special events. You can also follow #DR18 on Twitter for
updates on where to get it.

Saint Arnold
BBQ Tour Houston
February 19 – April 13


You’ve known for a while we love smoked meats almost as much as we
love beer. Any time we can bring the two together, we’re happy folks. We want
you to share in our happiness, so we’re teaming up with our friends at Houston
BBQ Festival to introduce the Saint Arnold BBQ Tour Houston. You can eat great
BBQ and drink great beer – and even win glorious prizes. Here’s how it
works:


Starting February 19, head to one
of the BBQ joints below, pick up your official Saint Arnold BBQ Tour
Houston card and get it stamped. Perhaps enjoy some delicious smoked meats while
you’re there – with a Saint Arnold beer of course! After that, head to the
rest of the places, in any order, before April 13. Here are the
spots:

 

 

Gatlin’s
BBQ
 
Pinkerton’s
Barbecue
 
Jackson Street
BBQ
 
The Pit
Room
 
El Burro and The
Bull
 
Killen’s
Barbecue

 

 

After you’ve completed the tour, bring your fully
stamped card to the brewery, and we’ll hook you up with a commemorative pint
glass (to be available starting mid March).

Everyone
who completes the Saint Arnold BBQ Tour Houston will also be entered to win
prizes including VIP and General Admission tickets to Houston BBQ Festival and
limited edition Saint Arnold miniature grills! Prize drawings
will be held on April 13, and winners will be notified via
email.


Get your stomachs ready,
Houston!



Get Married
by Saint Arnold + Win a Houston Honeymoon

Are you getting married soon?
Do you want to? Do you love Saint Arnold beer? How much? If you answered yes,
sure, of course, and a lot, we have something for you.

We’re setting up
our wedding chapel at the Big Texas Beer Fest in Dallas on March 30 and March
31, and the Patron Saint of Brewers himself will be on hand spreading the
fellowship of beer and performing wedding ceremonies. That’s where you come
in.

If you let Saint Arnold legally marry you at the festival, we’ll hook
you up with a beer-filled Houston Honeymoon. We’ll set you up in a Hilton hotel
for two nights, we’ll give you a VIP tour of Saint Arnold, and you’ll enjoy a
special beer dinner at Pass & Provisions. It will be a delicious weekend
indeed.

Here’s the fine print. You have to bring your actual legal
marriage license to the festival with you for Saint Arnold to sign. Worry not,
Saint Arnold is legally ordained. This is the real deal. You also need to
purchase tickets to the festival. The dates of the honeymoon will be scheduled
at an agreed upon time (must be sometime this summer) by the wedding couple, the
hotel, Pass & Provisions and the staff at Saint Arnold. If you have any
questions, please email Lennie Ambrose at lennie@saintarnold.com.

Now’s the time to say “I
do.”
