Orlando Brewing is set to release The Senator imperial stout tomorrow afternoon at 1:00 pm in its taproom! "The Senator" is special for a couple of reasons. First, it is the first time (to our knowledge) that Orlando Brewing has included an imperial stout in its portfolio of beers. Second, this special release is dedicated to the memory of a 3500 year old Cypress tree that was burned to the ground by a careless smoker in 2012. The official press release from Orlando Brewing is listed below...
