Austin Beerworks threw a big party at their brewery on December 11, to celebrate the launch of the newest addition to their seasonal beer roster, Sputnik, a Russian Imperial Oatmeal Stout. Inspired by the movie Man on a Mission and fueled by Cuvée Coffee, Sputnik is described as a crazy and complex kitchen-sink-style oatmeal stout with a coffee twist. It is the result of a collaboration between a passionate and nerdy beer brewer and an equally passionate and nerdy coffee roaster.

Like every brew Austin Beerworks makes, Sputnik will be sold at select Austin bars within 15 miles of the brewery. The taproom is located at 3009 Industrial Terrace, Austin, TX 78758.
