The Mad Czar, a Russian Imperial Stout, Available Now in 16oz Cans

SanTan Brewing Company is excited to launch their third Vault Series installment, The Mad Czar. This brew is a Russian Imperial Stout that boasts a rich and silky, full body taste delivering a malt flavor packed with chocolate, coffee and caramel notes with a dark roast aroma. The Mad Czar has been conditioned for a minimum of eight weeks creating a bold flavor and bringing the ABV up to 9.9%.

The Vault Series is a collection of limited release specialty craft beers inspired by the Valley National Bank’s iconic vault, which still remains at SanTan’s downtown Chandler brewpub. All Vault Series beers have a high ABV of 9% or more and are conditioned for a minimum of six to eight weeks. This is SanTan Brewing Company’s first 16oz canned series.

The Mad Czar Vault Series is available now on tap at SanTan Brewing Company and in 16oz cans across Arizona, California and Texas at select bars, restaurants and retail locations – while supplies last.

“The 6-8 week conditioning process is essential for this series due to the high alcohol content. By slowing things down and allowing the yeast to slowly condition the beer we’re able to produce a strong but balanced SouthWestern Style Ale,” said founder and brewmaster, Anthony Canecchia.

After The Mad Czar Russian Imperial Stout, the Vault Series lineup will include Fat AleBert Hey Hey Heavyweight Brown, Lalapalupalin Ridiculous IPA and KiloHop Ludicrous IPA.
