It can easily be argued that Hardywood is one of the pioneers of brewing an imperial stout with other ingredients outside the basic four. The result is a collection of blinging medals commemorating their inventiveness over the years. Although their catalog of potent sippers is extensive, the Gingerbread is the godfather of them all.
