Terra Incognita, the collaboration beer from Boulevard Brewing Company and California’s Sierra Nevada Brewing Co., hits liquor store shelves today.

According to Boulevard, the earthy barrel-aged beer boasts a deep brown color, a spicy hop finish, and subtle notes of oak, vanilla and toffee.

The limited-edition brew comes in 750-mL bottles with labels designed by Kansas City letterpress shop Hammerpress.

Brewers from Boulevard and Sierra Nevada will toast Terra Incognita at a beer dinner tonight at Rye in Leawood. The $65-per-person, multi-course meal by James Beard Award-winning chef Colby Garrelts and wife Megan Garrelts features oysters paired with Terra Incognita, smoked sweetbreads with Saison Brett, and bourbon-glazed smoked pork paired with Sierra Nevada’s Ovila Abbey Saison.
