Located in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Beer City Bread Co. have teamed up with Perrin Brewing Co (Comstock Park) to create a winter beer that was inspired by Beer City Bread's Mackinaw Island Fudge Cake. Sounds like the ultimate winter beer to me.

Imperial Fudge Cake Stout had real fudge cake thrown directly into the mix when brewing the new beer.

Connor Klopcic, director of brewing operations at Perrin:

It's really fun working with something like Beer City Bread's Mackinaw Island Fudge Cake. It's such a delicious cake and emulating its flavors was a fun challenge – although throwing 10 cakes directly into the mash definitely helps.

According to Fox 2 Detroit, the 8.5% ABV stout is part of the brewery's Side Hustle series. Beers in the series are an experimental line-up that's meant introduce new flavors to the industry.

I'm not one to normally venture out of my light beer comfort zone but there is something about this Imperial Fudge Cake Stout that's very intriguing.

Stefan Fahlen, Director of restaurant operations at Beer City Bread:

Mackinaw Fudge Cake and Perrin Imperial Stout – what an incredible combination to make a must-try winter beer. It’s awesome to be able to collaborate with Perrin again to make another exciting beer. I can’t wait for everyone to be able to experience the flavors that come through in this new stout.

Where Can I Get Imperial Fudge Cake Stout?

As of right now, you only get Imperial Fudge Cake Stout at The Perrin Pub in Comstock Park. However, the beer will distributed throughout Michigan soon.
