Fortuna, CA (Nov. 2020) – 25 years ago, as the first shovel struck ground, ravens graced the property where Eel River Brewing Co. stands today. On very rare occasions ravens flock together and that is called an UNKINDNESS.

To celebrate 25 years of business Eel River Brewing has aged the classic Raven’s Eye Stout in Caribbean rum barrels for over 9 months! Imparting this Stout with decadent notes of rum, oak, chocolate, and espresso. This brew is a true celebration, as rare as an Unkindness, and as rich as the raven’s forgotten lore.

“This beer is a monster at 11.5 ABV.” said head brewer, Mike Smith. “We wanted to do something special for our 25th Anniversary so we tracked down barrels from a traditional rum distillery in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The Beer turned out amazingly potent yet smooth and drinkable.”

A very limited supply of Rum Barrel Aged UNKINDNESS will be available in 16 ounce 4 packs at your local retailer starting November 23rd, 2020. In addition, UNKINDNESS will be available in 22oz bottles and on draft starting November 20th. The 22oz bottle and draft will only be available at our pub in Fortuna, CA. Please check Eel River Brewing Company website for distribution and availability in your area.
