Sarasota County's first production craft brewery, Big Top Brewing Co., had a hit when it released Ashley Gang Outlaw Imperial IPA recently in its tasting room. The nearly 10 percent alcohol beer sold out quickly, and the brewery said people kept asking for its return.
Good news: It's back on tap, and Big Top (6111 Porter Way) made more this time. And this weekend, if you aren't content with drinking it at the tasting room, you can get some to go.
Big Top will fill up to 100 32-ounce growlers -- 50 on Saturday and 50 on Sunday -- with the beer. The price, including a growler, will be $20. If you bring in your own 32-ounce growler it will cost you $15.
