BrewDog has unveiled several upcoming beers for 2017 including a new imperial stout created with London's Beavertown.

The beer, called BrewDog vs Beavertown, is “smoky, insanely flavourful and completely unmissable” according to a new blog post on the company’s website.

The blog said: “With our latest collaboration released last week we are turning attention toward the next – in multiple barrels at the moment is a beer we brewed with the incomparable Beavertown.”

“A thunderous imperial stout, it harnesses the power of nine different malts and three different casks.”

New beers for 2017

Upcoming releases also include Semi-Skimmed Occultist (a one-off, canned coffee and chocolate vanilla oatmeal milk stout); Nitro Breakfast Stout (8% ABV); AB22 (a chai-spiced imperial brown ale); Paradox Rye (15% ABV); Cocoa Psycho Stout (a 10% ABV imperial stout); and a small batch Belgian Tripel (13% ABV).

Semi-skimmed Occultist: one-off canned brew

BrewDog will re-introduce Tactical Nuclear Penguin, its 32% ABV imperial stout that was once the strongest beer in the world, and Hop Fiction (5.2% ABV last time it was brewed), its American pale which was first launched as part of its 2014 prototype series.

It will also mark its tenth anniversary by releasing Dog F, an imperial stout which it is currently ageing in French Cognac barrels, later this year. 

New England IPA

BrewDog and Cloudwater’s New England IPA (6.8% ABV), which the two breweries created at BrewDog’s Ellon facility in January, was released last week across the company's pub portfolio and in 660ml bottles​.

BrewDog recently appointed a new managing director, Gareth Bath, and announced the upcoming opening of its first US pub in Canal Winchester, Ohio – the brewer’s biggest site yet.

Cloudwater was recently named Best English Brewery​ and fifth best in the world at the international RateBeer awards in Santa Rosa, California.

Versions 3, 6, 8 and 10 of its popular double IPA were also named Best New Beers.
