EDMONTON, AB Alley Kat Brewing has announced the return of a beer that has been making occasional appearances in one form or another for almost a decade.

5 3/4 Bears Oatmeal Stout (5.75% abv) is the latest in a series of variants that started as Three Bears (5% abv) in 2011, and became the stronger 6 1/2 Bears (6.5% abv) in 2014, before taking on its current recipe and strength in 2017. It’s described as follows:

Dark in colour with a toasty flavour to tickle your taste buds, this oatmeal stout has a silky smooth mouth feel and clean finish. When you’re ready to hibernate away from the snow and cold, slip on your fuzziest slippers, pull on your toque-iest toque, and cozy up with 5 3/4 Bears!

5 3/4 Bears is available now at the Alley Kat brewery store and online shop, and select liquor stores in Alberta while supplies last.
