EMBRACE THE DARKNESS
From the shadows, it emerges...Origin of Darkness, our annual, limited-release, Imperial Stout collab series returns! This year, we partnered with our friends over at Southern Grist Brewing for a little taste of that southern hospitality. We brewed two unique stouts to continue the legacy of our Origin of Darkness series. Explore this year's brews below.
Maple Rum Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout with Vanilla
Rich. Balanced. Delightfully dark. This isn't just a beer — it's an experience. We partnered with Nashville's Southern Grist Brewing to create a barrel-aged imperial stout engulfed in darkness. Aged to perfection in our maple syrup rum barrels, this stout boasts velvety dark chocolate flavours with roasted coffee and hints of toffee that we've harmoniously balanced with the sweet and subtle touches of maple syrup, vanilla and aged rum. Explore the Origins of Darkness with this delectable dark brew.
Imperial Stout wITH Maple Syrup, Pistachio, Vanilla & Lactose
Taking advantage of our shared interest in decadent mascarpone desserts, we partnered with Nashville's Southern Grist to create this rich and luscious pastry stout. We included an irresistible flavour combination of rich maple syrup and nutty pistachios and topped it off with the creamy sweetness of both vanilla and lactose. Explore the Origins of Darkness with this delectable dark brew.

Buba's work explores symbolism and archetypes from dreams, seamlessly blending personal dreams and obsessions with modern relevance. He has had successful exhibitions at La Roca Gallery in Madrid as well as in Berlin, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Seville, and New York.
In Collaboration with
Southern Grist Brewing
Hailing from Nashville, TN, Southern Grist is constantly pushing boundaries and evolving what beer can taste like. Their beer is small-batch and experimental, and as a result it's usually not around for very long. They use ingredients that aren’t always Reinheitsgebot-approved but that’s okay. They like it that way. We think you will too.
WORKING WITH RYAN AND THE AWESOME TEAM AT COLLECTIVE ARTS IS ALWAYS A PLEASURE. THE CREATIVITY AND METICULOUS CARE THAT GOES INTO THESE PROJECTS, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT IS BARREL AGED, IS SOMETHING WE ALWAYS LOOK FORWARD TO AND HAVE A BLAST BRINGING TO FRUITION!
